Summary

Following on from her examination of the weird and wonderful animal kingdom, this second season of Earpedia sees comedian Sue Perkins presenting a series of audio guides to the planet's most useful, bizarre and interesting plants.

Join Sue as she explores the truly horrible welwitschia mirabilis, which looks like a gateway into the pit of hell, the stony lithops plant, which resembles a dog's testicles, the technically poisonous cocoa plant, the caveman's discovery of rubber, and how much of the Venus flytrap's diet is actually flies.

As an Audio Show - free for members - when you add Sue Perkins Earpedia: Plants to your library, you'll get all 13 episodes, each with a runtime of about 10 minutes.

Very informative

I found this a highly informative series with a healthy dose of humor, allowing the information to never become stale. Without Sue Perkins this series would not work as well. I learnt a lot, they were easy bites of information that allowed for listening on short journeys and whilst having some down time. The chocolate one was particularly well done with many a hint at dark humor. A very worthwhile listen especially as it free on audible currently.

Brilliant botany...

A charming series, and like the Animals version, I wished the episodes were longer and contained more information, as the tid bits about each plant were fascinating. Sue Perkins is the perfect narrator to maintain an upbeat, engaging, listen.
