2013 was a great year in science. We saw the Chelyabinsk meteor, the first human-to-human brain interface, a baby ‘cured’ of HIV and so many other fascinating science discoveries. And we had heaps of fun talking about them all. But it wasn’t all plain-sailing, and there were a few times when we’d get distracted, forget our words or go off on a tangent.
And there’s also lots of great conversation that happens behind the scenes, too. Talking to guests about their work, or chatting about stories we did or didn’t cover.
Most of the time, these all get left out of the final show. But they’re not lost forever. We’ve compiled some of the bloopers and out-takes from this year into an entirely new episode for you to enjoy. It’s not on the usual Science on Top RSS feed, so you HAVE to download it manually to listen to it – iTunes and other podcast aggregators won’t get it.
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!
