150 episodes

Once a week Myles Power, James Gurney and, on occasion, Buck Mulligan come together to try and make the world a slightly more rational place. Their podcast, The League of Nerds (TLoNs), is a light-hearted glance into some of the stranger and more serious realms of irrationality that, unlike other similar podcasts, feels more like an informal chat down the pub with friends rather than an unfriendly academic lecture. Each show lasts about an hour and the Nerds are often joined by a special guest who brings their own thoughts, knowledge, and experience to the show, making every episode fresh and unique. These guests range from highly credited scientists to Hollywood actors. A particularly interesting guest was the lead author of a HIV denialist book who tried to convince James (a Dr of microbiology who works on viruses) that viruses do not in fact exist. The Nerds are also big on building an online community and encourage their listeners to submit questions for the show in the hope of giving a platform to people whose voices might otherwise go unheard.

Come Back!

Let's just say you guys need to make some 'specials' or something because there is so much crap out there you never touched. Princes Diana conspiricies, 5G, Atlantis. The barrel goes so much further down even when you hit Buck you were suprisingly still far from the bottom.

Come back and do more.

An absolutely fascinating and funny podcast

Every week myles James and whoever they could drag in on the day are able to give a wealth of information on the given subject in a light hearted and humorous way. My current favourite podcast.
