Taste of the Festival – Let our reporters take you on a journey through this year’s science extravaganza, including self-flying drones, schools investigating air pollution and a fairground of science.
Eurovision euphoria – Just getting to the final of the Eurovision Song Contest is linked to increased life satisfaction for a country, whether they win or get nil points. We talk to the researchers behind the study to find out why this might be, and what the implications are for public health.
The podcast is presented by Gareth Mitchell, a lecturer on Imperial's MSc Science Communication course and the presenter of Click Radio on the BBC World Service, with contributions from our roving reporters in the Research Communications group.
