Interacting Weakly is a regular podcast that aims to bring you a summary of the week’s science in a funny, almost entirely non-offensive way. The brainchild of writer Gilead Amit and producer Jen Whyntie (both currently on Imperial College London’s “Science Communication” Masters course), Interacting Weakly features a revolving and evolving cast of some of the most difficult-to-spell names in popular science coverage.
“[A] bizarre Monty Python/Horizon hybrid [...] a twisted genetic mess of comedy and science” — Ben Gilliland, MetroCosm (Metro).
