Science – New podcasts

  • From a Westboro Baptist Church defector and an ex-Hasidic Jew to the world's first ever blogger and teenage class president who confessed to being a pedophile, BBC journalist Andrew Gold takes us away from our comfort zone and into the worlds of people on the edge. New episodes every Wednesday.


    It's been a top Editor Pick for Castbox and Stitcher, who also placed it in their 'What we're listening to'. Andrew has been making documentaries about bizarre, unusual and remarkable people around the world for a decade. He's done battle with an exorcist, taken on anti-abortionists and hunted for UFOs, all while living in six different countries and learning to speak five languages.


    In this podcast, he aims to get to the humanity of people living on the fringes, and introduce these people with diverse ways of looking at the world to the listener. It's not all deep and sad - he aims to get humour and fun out of these people, so the audience can also actually...be entertained! Follow him on twitter here @andrewgold_ok and check out his documentaries on his YouTube channel.


    Oh, and please do leave a review - it helps boost it up those charts!

  • Welcome to the Offshore Wind Podcast, hosted by Ben Backwell and Stewart Mullin! Offshore wind is one of the world’s fastest growing energy sources, with strong year on year growth expected across the next few decades. Many nations are banking on offshore wind to play a major role in reaching their decarbonization and sustainability targets and helping their economies recover from the COVID-19 crisis. On the technology front, turbines are bigger and more powerful than ever, offshore wind farm capacity factors continue to rise and we are seeing a surge of interest from oil and gas giants seeking to transition their businesses away from fossil fuels, as well as increased competition from the developers who have championed offshore wind from day one.New markets in Asia, the Americas, and eventually Africa, accelerated growth in Europe, the rise of floating offshore wind and increasing interest in power-to-x solutions, are creating the basis for unprecedented growth in the industry. The offshore wind podcast series looks at the issues facing the offshore wind industry today, and opportunities for tomorrow.

  • Fan of animals, wildlife, nature, conservation & natural science? We've got you covered. Comedian Ryan Dalton dives Into The Wild with the experts to chat about variety of topics all to do with wildlife.

  • Join us as we explore the power of the natural world to inform and inspire us -- in our everyday lives, and in the complex challenges the world is facing. 


    Through unfurling conversations, we delve into climate change, authenticity, economics, stories, networks, adventure, and more, and explore what the natural world might tell us about how to approach these topics. We look from different perspectives - including science and the sacred, city and rural, micro and macro, logic and creativity, and individuals and systems - and try to cross pollinate ideas, find common ground, and uncover new ways of thinking. We offer up personal experiences, as well as theory and ideas from elsewhere, and we tap into the pure joy and wonder of the natural world.


    This podcast is for everyone: whether youโ€™re a nature lover or feeling a lack of connection with the natural world right now; whether youโ€™re a curious individual or an organisation looking to think differently. And if youโ€™d like to carry on the conversation, do join our Facebook Group, which will go live when our first episode is released on Thursday 30th July 2020. 


    Unfurling is hosted by UK-based Catriona Horey and Elizabeth Wainwright. 

    Elizabeth is a writer, a coach and consultant, and an elected District Councillor. Catriona is a coach specialising in leadership, life, climate change and nature coaching. The experience we bring to Unfurling includes leadership of non-profits; leadership development; consultancy; coaching and coach training; writing; community development; international project management; and local and international climate work. Together, we have designed and hosted nature-based workshops, and delivered coaching workshops on climate change and mindset.

  • ‘Novel Thoughts’ is a series exploring the literary reading habits of eight Cambridge scientists. From illustrated children’s books to Thomas Hardy, from Star Wars to Middlemarch, we find out what fiction has meant to each of the scientists and peek inside the covers of the books that have played a major role in their lives. ‘Novel Thoughts’ was inspired by research at St Andrew’s University by Dr Sarah Dillon (now a lecturer in the Faculty of English at Cambridge) who interviewed 20 scientists for the ‘What Scientists Read’ project. She found that reading fiction can help scientists to see the bigger picture and be reminded of the complex richness of human experience. Novels can show the real stories behind the science, or trigger a desire in a young reader to change lives through scientific discovery. They can open up new worlds, or encourage a different approach to familiar tasks.

  • Two psychologists discuss science, clinical practice, and societal controversies.

The women and men represented by the pink ribbon may have the same disease, but everyone’s story is different. Behind the Pink Ribbon is a weekly podcast dedicated to sharing the stories of breast cancer survivors to uncover the reality of what lies behind the pink ribbon. We bring on experts in oncology, genetics, plastic surgery, nutrition, and more to provide information on topics specific to breast cancer. We also bring on organizations that offer resources, services, and support to breast cancer survivors and their caregivers.

    This podcast will bring you stories of inspiration and hope, and a reminder that you are not alone in this journey. It will provide you with information and resources to be your own best advocate as you navigate through your journey of breast cancer.
