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 follows the Nano Show and is about all things very small. This episode features the true meaning of the term 'nano', the possibility (or not) of a grey goo apocalypse, your chance to win a Nobel prize and some super nano songs.
Written and devised by Helen Arney, Steve Mould and Matt Parker. Produced by Elizabeth Hauke.
