Sure – you want to keep up with the latest developments in science. Who doesn’t? But, sometimes, doesn’t it all just get a bit heavy? Wouldn’t you like your science – and it is your science, after all – to be freshly squeezed from the week’s headlines and served in a tall glass of sketch comedy? And wouldn’t you like someone to pour that science juice straight into your ears – possibly using some hilarious (terrible) comedy accents?
