A Podcast Of Unnecessary Detail

It’s here! A Podcast Of Unnecessary Detail Series 2 is now live and listenable on a device of your choosing. Find us by searching for “Unnecessary Detail” wherever you get your podcasts, or for our feed URL click here.

It features Matt Parker, Steve Mould and Helen Arney talking about things that you wouldn’t believe could be interesting, but turn out to be fascinating when you get down to the nitty and / or gritty. Each episode starts with a single phrase and brings together three unique takes on it from the three Spoken Nerds.
