Birdy & The Boffin

Science is great! It gives your brain a work-out and explains how everything in the world works.  It’s a shame about the boring bits though. Imagine, however, if you could remove all the dull bits and dial up the volume on the really interesting, weird parts of science? Well, imagine no more – because it’s exactly what Geek Chic Weird Science is all about!

Geek Chic Weird Science is a series of podcasts which aims to aged light on the strange, cool stuff which you never learned about at school. Stuff like the science of lesbian orgasms, Vulcan telepathy or squid-inspired invisibility cloaks.

So if you’ve ever wondered whether you can you wipe your memory of a heartbreak, teleport yourself on holiday, or save a life with a crisp packet – these are for you.

And the reason we’re writing about Geek Chic Weird Science here (beyond the desire to feed your minds with interesting things)? A fair few TVO connections is why: The podcasts are a labour of love (something dear to our hearts!) from Lliana Bird, xfm DJ and occasional Luxury Comedy/Mighty Boosh actress. And the series logo, which you can see here, has been created by none other than Noel Fielding and Dave Brown.

The series, featuring Birdy and neuroscientist Dr Jack Lewis, are available to listen to on iTunes podcasts. There are 5 episodes so far to download for FREE here. And there are more to come, so it’s worth subscribing. What’s more, iTunes has just featured ‪them in their ‘New & Noteworthy’ section – how cool is that? “Honoured and chuffed beyond belief,” said Birdy about the accolade, before adding, “It’s not cool to show off about this kind of stuff is it?”

So don your lab coats, grab your bunsen burners and head over to iTunes to gorge your mind on clever weirdness.

  1. I am loving these podcasts! As someone who is pretty much allergic to science, I’m actually enjoying and finding myself really interested in these quirky subjects. Thanks guys for making science interesting and fun 🙂 x
