Episode 105: Virgin Picking (with Alan Duffy)

Sep 27, 2013, 10:26 AM

Belinda and Jack get another dose of astrophysics with Alan Duffy, a charming cosmologist, and chat about Australia’s new lack of a science minister, Voyager 1’s trip out of the solar system, and the scientific argument against gay marriage. Jargonauts goes into questionable territory with “harassment”, and Question of the Week is a brutal free-​​for-​​all about which area of science deserves the least amount of funding.

Plus: Jack does fly work, Belinda has glasses, Alan gets bitten by a penguin, and someone pretends to be a creationist.
