Episode 3: Sunday 26th February 2012

What do you know, it’s episode 3 of Interacting Weakly! This week we’re joined by Gilead Amit, Nigel Fullerton, Andrew Winterville, Jen Whyntie and Tom Whyntie, and had a little help from our friends Matt Allinson and Thom Hoffman.

In this Sunday’s serving of salubrious scienticity, you’ll hear the laws of physics and our regional accent capabilities pushed to the limits as we take you on a journey to the final frontiers of science-based topical sketch comedy. Rumours of a dedicated “Meat Issue” from earlier in the week were, sadly, unfounded. Let us know what you think in the comments, or on Twitter at @interactweakly.

This week we’ve got tiny chameleons, enormous rockets, and medium-sized drinking vessels that science has told us are “just right”.

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?
