Summary

Join Professor John Lloyd and Curators Noel Fielding, Jo Brand, Romesh Ranganathan and Sally Phillips as they plunge down the badger hole of ignorance in a search for the universe's most mind-boggling oddnesses.

The Museum of Curiosity is BBC Radio 4's monumental comedy edifice and the only one with gargoyles in the foyer. It allows nothing inside that doesn’t make you scratch your head, stroke your chin or, at the very least, go ‘hmm’. Fortunately, helping to fill its almost vacant plinths is a gathering of the world’s most original minds. 

The guests bearing donations to the museum in this collection include Howard Goodall, Corey Taylor, Vic Reeves, Ross Noble, George Monbiot, Lucy Porter, Deborah Frances-White, Stephen K Amos, Konnie Huq, Rory Bremner and Phil Jupitus.

Consistently great take on being Qi

BBCR4 series from the Qi team. If you like this sort of thing in a refreshing format, very different to the TV show - give it a go.

Always a good listen

An interesting program when you want to take entertainment in small doses. I have to say that I prefer the earlier series, as guests and curators seemed a bit more engaged. Oh, and John Lloyd's insistence on the puns wears a little thin. But still a fun time.
