The End

Unfortunately, we have to discontinue the English channel of this podcast. We would have loved to continue, but right now, it is basically impossible for the two of us, as we are crazy busy right now and cloning - well. We are very sorry! If you, by an...

Please laser my library

We, together with Andy Beeby and Richard Gameson, will introduce you into the wonderful world of books! This episode is not about written stories, though. It's about the ink, the paper, the question "How did this get made?". How can we look at the diff...

A Song of Heroes and Murderers

Game of Thrones fans, this is for you! Because it'll get bloody. And treacherous. We take a look at the German epic "The Song of the Nibelungs" and try to untangle the mess of love, hate, betrayal and war that it contains. And we'll look at one of the ...

Gone with the Inertia

We're back in the wind canal, on the rotor blade, on the wings of change, so to speak. We continue to tackle wind energy and the mysterious inertia (cue to Dennis singing creepily in the backgorund) with Professor Simon Hogg of Durham University. Hang ...

The Wind in the Wheels

We all need electricity. It's something we often don't even think about - we just switch the laptop on or plug our phone charger in. But electricity has to come from somewhere - and ideally it should be environmentally friendly. So is wind energy the s...

No need to squash an eyeball

Why does a physicist build a tiny replica of a dishwasher to put under a microscope? And what invention has made going to the optician or eye doctor that much more bearable (and also created a fun moment in TV history)? Join in as Durham University's P...

The cumbersome trip through time

SciPie goes Sci-Fi: There are hardly any stories about a whole society being allowed to use time machines like we use planes today. Why is that? In our new episode, we talk about general relativity and Shakespeare oscillating between the literary figur...

The power of ten to the power of sixty
