Ron Healy ,

Just your average Everyman being baffled, amazed and amused by science, on our behalf.

I read a lot. Much of it is non-fiction. I’m interested in everything - but only at the surface level. I don’t want to be an expert in Genomics, Cosmology or Quantum Physics. But I’m interested in what these things are all about.

So is Jonathan.

Even better: he’s not an expert in any of these things either, so he asks the questions you or I probably would - about everything under (and even inside!) the Sun

Episodes are anything from a few
Minutes long to nearly an hour. Highly recommended for road trips, long journeys etc.

Always entertaining

I have listened for years, frequently when traveling. Always a high quality production while always careful to explain how topics such as statistics or newspaper headlines can be misinterpreted.

Simply the best

Better than all the rest (science based podcasts). Having spent the last four years listening to this, some BBC and Gimlet science podcasts Futureproof is consistently the best.

Great work by the production team and thanks to Newstalk and Science Foundation Ireland for commissioning the show.
