Extra Time For Questions Podcast: Pop!

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 Pop! show and is about things that go pop!, from music to bubbles! In this episodes Helen, Matt and Steve crowd source an equation to describe the modern pop song (listen to the end for the song Helen created from this equation!). Matt takes a look at bubbles and the maths that underpins them and Steve creates some unusual sounds from balloons.

Written and devised by Helen Arney, Steve Mould and Matt Parker. Produced by Ed Prosser.
