More Info

For the last five years, Greg Wah and Dan Beeston have been delivering fortnightly doses of science, comedy and ignorance. Their podcast has talked about everything from living on Mars, building skyscrapers out of wood and ... Teletubbies?!  With feedback from the International Astronomy Union saying they can call the sun and moon whatever they want, they have (un)officially named the sun, Chad, and the moon, Colin. They have talked real science with some of the hottest upcoming scientists of the 20th century and they’ve even roped in an award winning chef to explain how to prepare, cook and serve a Xenomorph from Alien!
