    The Man With Size 36 Feet!

    The Man With Size 36 Feet!

    We've learned that Dave can get quite obsessed. Sneakers, guitars, Coco Pops, things get added almost weekly. We can now include height on the list and that is why he has secured the talents of Dr.Eirini Marouli, the Associate Professor in Computational Biology at the William Harvey Research Institute, Queen Mary University of London to tell us whether we're as tall now as we're ever gonna be. Her title is almost as impressive as her knowledge on the subject! Amongst the facts Dave brings us is the tale of the tallest man who ever lived and his absolutely enormous shoes!
    We must pause at this point to apologise to any giraffes who listen to the podcast. It seems Neil has been waiting to "go off on one" about you and he does.
    Enjoy!

    LIVE EPISODE - WHY WE GET HUNGRY!

    LIVE EPISODE - WHY WE GET HUNGRY!

    Live Episode Alert!!!
    WHY WE GET HUNGRY
    Neil and Dave are delighted, not only to be recording a podcast in the same room for the first time, but also to be joined by an audience of enthusiastic Why Would You Tell Me That!? listeners in the Viking Theatre, Dublin.
    To celebrate Science Week, the lads have done their first live podcast and who better to invite along than the brilliant Dr Lara Dungan, who gently walks the lads through ghrelin, the “hunger hormone”.
    Why do we get hungry? When? Is ‘hanger’ real? Why does Dave get unnaturally excited by Coco Pops? Is white chocolate real chocolate? *
    All will be revealed.
    In association with Science Foundation Ireland
     
    *Clearly not, you utter lunatics!

    Why Cows Gave Us Messi

    Why Cows Gave Us Messi

    When Neil heard someone say that selective cattle breeding in the 18th Century affected Argentinian football, he just knew this was an episode waiting to happen. The fact that the person who uttered those words was one of the best sports journalists around made it even more important to pursue. Enter Jonathan Wilson, Guardian journalist, author and football expert. He explains to the lads how selective cattle breeding and a bull named Tarquin created Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi!

    Your Geography Teacher Was Wrong!

    Your Geography Teacher Was Wrong!

    Remember the map of the world on the wall at school? Well, it was wrong. In fact, probably every map you've ever seen is wrong.
    In this episode, BBC presenter, geographer and author, Nicholas Crane, gives the lads the lowdown on the map that changed the world.
    Neil also tells Dave about the statue that has more 1000 outfits and reveals the things you might see when you're out walking your weasel.*
    *This is not a euphemism

    Would Your Dog Eat You If You Died and Other Gory Tales!

    Would Your Dog Eat You If You Died and Other Gory Tales!

    This episode is gory! In fact, the lads are joined by Erika Engelhaupt, the author of an amazing book called Gory Details: Adventures from the Dark Side of Science. She has been drafted in by Dave to explain the science behind the mystery of why feet have been washing ashore in Vancouver for decades! She'll also answer the question, "Would your dog eat you if you died?" And Dave will explain why it rains fish, frogs and, once, some creamy white goo in 1969.
