A Podcast Of Unnecessary Detail

It’s here! A Podcast Of Unnecessary Detail is now live and listenable on a device of your choosing.

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 word or phrase and brings together three unique takes on it from the three Spoken Nerds. Plus bonus science songs from Helen!

Series 2 is out in 2022!

We’re currently  working on a new, longer, even more detailed series which will launch in Spring 2022.
