That bedtime cup of hot chocolate next to you, the alarm clock within your reach, the banana in your fruit bowl, that other object near you… yes, that one right there. It’s totally covered in science too, and the Nerds will help reveal it.
In a world where everything is shorter and sharper than ever before – TED talks, the 5:2 diet, High Intensity Interval Training – Domestic Science looks to impart bite-size learning about the everyday objects in your life. It will pop into your brain before you sleep and allow your sub-conscious to turn you into a know-it-all genius* while you sleep. Recorded in front of a live audience for BBC Radio 4, get your intensive hit of comedy, science and live experiments all from the comfort of your bed or as you drive home.

We absolutely loved making this for BBC Radio 4, and answering your audience questions at the recordings. Unfortunately it’s no longer available to listen to on the BBC site (except for possible repeats in the future) but there are links to a few snippets of audio below, which should give you a flavour of the show. No headphones? No worries. Read about Seven weird things you’re probably eating without realising and Six quirky science experiments you can do on yourself right now.
