Would like them to delve a little deeper sometimes

Enjoyed these series, I couldn't really keep up on radio and it was relaxing to listen to.. Just wish they would have gone a little deeper into subjects instead of trying to cover loads of things in a show.. Overall though interesting and funny.

Science is fun

I first heard this on the radio and am happy to now own it. Always loved it. Chaps and guests discussing various scientific subjects. I just want to correct them on one thing. In one episode they say that Mary Shelley's book "Frankenstein" is anti science. It is nothing of the sort. Do yourself a favour and watch John Green's analysis on Youtube.
