Quality dedicated physics content

Quality dedicated physics content! Weekly!

Generally interesting BUT....

1. The sound effects and theme tune could do with being updated. They sound like an Open University programme on BBC2 as broadcast overnight in the 1980’s.

2. “The LGB+ experience in physics” is not really physics is it? This has been shoehorned in to a science podcast when it belongs in a society and culture podcast.

Woke.

Please don’t make assumptions on my lifestyle preference or my right to comment on this, because you’d quite probably be wrong.
