Oh yes, we podcast

In 2016 we launched the S@tL Podcast. We chat with real live scientists about the work they do, how they got into it and whatever else takes our fancy.

The podcast has a few flavours actually. Sometimes you can catch Kevin and I yakking it up and there are a couple of prototypes of Le Science Show, a blatant rip-off of Harry Shearer’s Le Show, which combines news, satire and music.

You can download or stream all our episodes at our Soundcloud page, or search for “Science at the Local” at the iTunes store. But don’t rate them – iTunes is getting you to do free work for them and you need to stop that now!
