Droppin' Science

missing image

Martin Archer and Greg Foot are scientists of the MTV generation. In their regular podcast, Droppin’ Science, they present the most interesting, weird, cool and quirky bits of the week’s science& tech, all bundled up with plenty of banter and some heavy production. The pod’s crammed full of regular features with Martin& Greg trying to humorously condense the most complicated scientific concepts into less than 5 seconds, heading out on the street to pose some quite frankly stupid science questions to the public, dissing the science& tech of the latest Hollywood blockbusters and trying to sneak some pseudobollocks past each other. Plus, the whole thing is backed by some banging tunes so your fellow commuters needn’t know you’re secretly a massive geek!
