SoT Special: 2017 Bloopers and Outtakes

2017 was a big year for science. Gravitational waves were detected four times, it was the end of Cassini’s mission, and lady dragonflies faked their own deaths to avoid sex. And we talked about all these stories and more on Science on Top. But not everything goes to plan, and this year was no exception! We had all sorts of Skype troubles, we forgot things, we were interrupted by dogs and phones… lots went wrong!

But instead of losing the hilarious moments of chaos, we’ve saved them all for our traditional end of year bloopers episode. All the rants, the tangents, the swearing and the brain farts all put together for one long blooper reel! There’s even an entire story that was cut from the regular show that we’ve included out of the kindness of our hearts.

As always, it’s full of swear words so we can’t put it on the usual RSS feed. This means you won’t be able to listen through iTunes or other podcast aggregators. You’ll have to manually download it with the big red button below, or play it on YouTube, Soundcloud or the player below.

Unlike our show normally, this special episode does contain swear words. It’s raw and unedited, an end-of-year bonus. Please don’t download it if naughty words offend you!
