Welcome to the Festival of the Spoken Nerd: Extra Time for Questions Podcast. Festival of the Spoken Nerd is a celebration of science, comedy, music, maths and unashamed geekiness. It's a variety show for the fearlessly inquisitive: artists, scientists, comedy fans, and anyone in between. It's hosted by three of London's best (and nerdiest) performers, who have all appeared as guests on BBC television and radio - musical comedian and physics graduate Helen Arney, stand-up mathematician and Famelab finalist Matt Parker and guerrilla scientist and stand-up comedian Steve Mould.
This podcast is about getting your 'Five A Day', including what's good for you and bad for you (according to the newspapers), homeopathy, happiness, spectacles made from water and songs about osteopathy, plastic hearts and more.
Written and devised by Helen Arney, Steve Mould and Matt Parker. Produced by Elizabeth Hauke.
