    "Great stuff"

    Really enjoyed this series. I think to go in just a bit more depth would have been welcome - perhaps that would have required slightly longer episodes.

    Story
    "Not an book, but a podcast"

    I like how someone gave 1 star because it's a podcast. It is clearly stated in the description that it is a BBC Radio 4 show, concluding that his review states more about him/her than about this show.
    Now to the point, it is a perfect introduction for teens into science, while still beeing fun for adults, it involves just enough of controversial points (not really controversial to a scientific mind) and enough funny things in order to captate one's attention. Personally would have loved to be a bit more math intensive, but you'll never get that from this kind of show. But it still is a lovely piece to listen to and have a laugh, while giving you a bit to think.

    "Informative and entertaining"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Infinite Monkey Cage, Series 6, 7, 8, and 9 to be better than the print version?

    Not relevant


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    not relevant


    Any additional comments?

    Factual and funny. Brian Cox and Robin Ince are a great double act: the intellectual eye-candy and the other one!
    I do not think that I have learned so much in half and hour. I only wish they would produce a longer edit of the recordings.

    "Does exactly what it says on the tin"

    A light hearted chat show about science. Some interesting discussion, topics and guests. Nothing outstandingly eye opening but certainly entertaining.

    "fantastic series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this to friends because it's great to hear science being discussed in a light, yet informative way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Its a radio series, not a story, but the subjects covered are really fascinating.


    What about Brian Cox and Robin Ince ’s performance did you like?

    They are a great team, quite clearly enjoying their jobs.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me think and also inspired me to find out more about science.


    Any additional comments?

    Recommend to anyone, even if you are not interested in science.

    "very entertaining and a little educational too"

    Thoroughly enjoyed the witty and colorful exchange between the hosts and guests. laced with many interesting facts and humorous jokes. This is excellent light entertainment not heavy science.
