— The Naked Scientists
You will have heard of The Naked Scientists. They do loads of very interesting things but, importantly for Chemistry World, they have been supporting us for years with the recording of our podcasts. Well, now it is our turn to support them so at Chemistry World we have decided to risk leaving our bunker as often as we can (no mean feat!) to take part in their podcasts and radio programmes. We will bring what in our opinion are the most interesting chemical sciences-related stories of the week and discuss them with Chris and his team and guests in as interactive and entertaining a manner as possible (or so we hope!).
We have already taken part in a few programmes so, for example, you can hear Laura talking about a new marshmallow-like material that can selectively absorb oil (and this is the CW story: Mopping up oil spills with marshmallows), explosion-powered nanorobots (CW story: Soft robots take a leap forward) or you can listen to me talking about how to sober up inebriated mice (CW story: Enzyme nano-parcels sober up drunken mice).
We hope you enjoy these clips as well as the full recordings and future radio shows – don’t touch that dial!
