Excellent Science Podcast

Presented by professionals you can trust and who make understanding very complex fields of science much more digestible and lighthearted. There you go!

A nice Sunday ritual for weird times

I love tuning in to the live Q&As on Sunday afternoons, but it’s great to have this feed so I can catch up on the audio the next week if I miss the live show. I always always learn something new and I’ve found lots of exciting scientists to follow online from all the guests.

Audio /

The audio is terrible , lagging and repeat words due to broadband connection issues in every episode, it isn’t enjoyable to listen to and that’s a real shame , please can you resolve this.
