Chris Berrow & Leigh Milner here again, looking at what gamification is, and why it might be coming to a game near you soon. We also review The Last of Us Part I, which now has a really fancy curtain. Also Return to Monkey Island, which doesn't have any curtains that we can find, and Splatoon 3. We didn't check out the curtain situation. Our report…
 
Why is Pluto not considered a planet anymore? What is the possibility of there being more than one universe? Why do birds not get electrocuted when they stand on electrical wires? Is the universe finite or infinite? If it is finite, what is it expanding into? What is the actual measurement of a lightyear? How do meteors form? Why do birds fly in fo…

It would be an exaggeration to say that there are as many beliefs about what and how we should eat as there are beliefs about religion but sometimes it feels that way. And like religious adherents, advocates of different dietary regimes often tussle to claim the moral high ground. David Clough and Lutfi Radwan consider the issues... Like this podca…

This week, it is time to put your questions to a panel of excellent experts in one of our Q&A shows! We are going to be investigating if truth serum really exists, what would happen if the Earth stopped rotating, and just how much nutrition is there in the human brain?

There is no orthodoxy that could not have been construed as blasphemous when it started. Christianity was accused by Jews of being blasphemous for proclaiming Jesus as divine, and Muhammad was criticised by his polytheistic Arab contemporaries for preaching monotheism.

This week's show conveys how surprisingly susceptible science is to dogma. We uncover the alarming oversights which have mitigated progress in disciplines like zoology and medicine for decades.
