Unfortunately, we have to discontinue the English channel of this podcast. We would have loved to continue, but right now, it is basically impossible for the two of us, as we are crazy busy right now and cloning - well. We are very sorry! If you, by any chance, learn or know German, though, there's still new episodes for you. Otherwise: Thanks ...…

We are investigating fusion! After trying to master the basics in our first episode, we answer the big questions: Why does anyone want fusion power? Why do governments spend that much money trying to handle plasmas? Also, you and a friend of yours will be running laps in a stadium just to collide and fusion at some point. Why have we been so in ...…

We're back on one of our favourite topics: generation of energy. In this episode, we talk to Thomas Klinger, scientific director of the fusion machine Wendelstein 7-X. But how did Taylor Swift, Kanye West and Justin Bieber get in here? And why do they appear the very moment natural scientists are asked to not listen too closely? For answers, yo ...…

This time around, we stay with the books and agree with Jojen from Game of Thrones: "A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. [...] The man who never reads lives only once." (G.R.R. Martin, of course, A Dance with Dragons). True, but sometimes, if you were a medieval illuminator, your manuscript could kill you before you could read it. F ...…

We, together with Andy Beeby and Richard Gameson, will introduce you into the wonderful world of books! This episode is not about written stories, though. It's about the ink, the paper, the question "How did this get made?". How can we look at the different materials used to manufacture a book when we are not allowed to touch it, let alone take ...…

It's summer time! Which means that our most trusted companion for hot sticky days is out there again: ice cream! In our third episode with John Girkin, we explore the most important question of 'em all: Why does the the stick of an ice cream look the way it does? And is there such a thing as a luxury stick? This question actually requires us to ...…

Zebra fish are gaining popularity compared to lab mice - their heart, for example, seems to be a remarkable model for the human heart, despite it looking completely different. But: Their heart has one superpower the human heart has not - which motivates people to use lasers to shoot at it. Why? And is it worth it? You decide. Music by Tchaikovs ...…

Game of Thrones fans, this is for you! Because it'll get bloody. And treacherous. We take a look at the German epic "The Song of the Nibelungs" and try to untangle the mess of love, hate, betrayal and war that it contains. And we'll look at one of the first baddies in German literary history: Hagen of Tronje, who seems to be all sorts of things ...…
 
We're back in the wind canal, on the rotor blade, on the wings of change, so to speak. We continue to tackle wind energy and the mysterious inertia (cue to Dennis singing creepily in the backgorund) with Professor Simon Hogg of Durham University. Hang your coat in the wind! (We think that saying only works in German, but we're not sure.) Music ...…
 
We all need electricity. It's something we often don't even think about - we just switch the laptop on or plug our phone charger in. But electricity has to come from somewhere - and ideally it should be environmentally friendly. So is wind energy the solution we've all been waiting for? How eco-friendly is it, really? Join us and professor Simo ...…
 
This is part 2 of our episode on black holes - again with Chris Done from Durham University! We recommend listening to the first one, "This side of the horizon", first. In this episode: Stephen Hawking! Black holes of all sizes, supermassive, tiny, you name it! Collisions of black holes! Huge detectors to detect gravitational waves! And mouse d ...…
 
As on Christmas Eve, we now present (get it?) to you: the second crossover episode with our friends from Outside of a Dog! We talk about everyone's favourite wizard, death, villains and hormones in the wizarding world. Like death, this episode will get you, whether you subscribe or not. Do you want to lick it? (Listen in to understand) You can ...…
 
If you want to escape the holiday madness, here's our first crossover episode with the literature podcast "Outside of a Dog" who very kindly invited us as guests for this episode full of witchcraft and wizardry. We drank butterbeer (a 16th century recepy) and discussed themes of this beloved book series. Tune in and be happy that your family at ...…
 
Our fourth advent episode: Bloopers! Slip-ups! Gaffes! Goof-ups! Bumblers! We're not a live podcast and therefore can just cut stuff that didn't work out. Here's some of that stuff. Music by Malaventura. All the music is to be found here. Produced by Dennis Schulz and Annika Brockschmidt. Photo: Christian Schirner / flickr (CC-BY-SA).…
 
Our third advent episode is probably the last soundbit you'll hear from our interview with Jo Fox. Is advertising propaganda? Even if it is advertising for a good cause? And, in the century of social media, are we all propagandists ourselves? Produced by Dennis Schulz and Annika Brockschmidt. Music by Kelly Latimore. We have used a lot of music ...…
 
This is our second advent episode - this time with a snippet from our interview with Chris Done. She talks about the perception of mathematical genius in society and popular culture - and why she disagrees with the portrayal of Will Hunting in the academy award winning film Good Will Hunting. Also, we included what she told us about white holes ...…
 
Ever wondered what's inside of a Black Hole? Monsters? And how they form? We start our complete guide to one of the most fascinating phenomenons space has to offer. Our guide isn't Spock, but might just as well be - because she's an expert for astrophysics: it's Professor Chris Done from the Physics Department of Durham University. Let's travel ...…
 
We decided to do advent episodes! Short bits from our interviews we wanted to release, but couldn't fit into a story. Few minutes each, few edits, one piece of music in the background. We start with Jo Fox, talking about the process of teaching and how she knows less the more she knows. More next week! Music by Maurice Ravel, played by Luis Sar ...…
 
We delve into the tricky field of atrocity propaganda. How does it work, why is it a thing we see time and time again? We travel through time to take a look at the form it took in World War 1 - and how it has changed since then. We follow the pictures into the present to the IS propaganda videos and discuss how we should deal with those images ...…
 
Why does a physicist build a tiny replica of a dishwasher to put under a microscope? And what invention has made going to the optician or eye doctor that much more bearable (and also created a fun moment in TV history)? Join in as Durham University's Professor John Girkin answers these questions (and some more) and explains his optical toys to ...…
 
We belong to a generation that grew up alongside Harry Potter, The Boy Who Lived - and yet, it is so much more than just a children's book. Alongside the lovely Anne-Sophie Charrière, who studied English Literature, especially the Harry Potter series, we dive into Rowling's elaborate and intricate world of magic and reveal the power behind the ...…
 
Imagine if Hitler had jumped out of an airplane over Britain and got captured in Glasgow. That didn't happen. But it happened to his deputy, Rudolf Heß. Join us as we dive into the strange and twisted story of Heß' caption alongside Durham University historian Jo Fox. We investigate what the curious case of Rudolf Heß can tell us about possible ...…
 
We are back! Join us as we dive into the fascinating field of propaganda with the help of Jo Fox, a specialist in the history of propaganda in twentieth-century europe and professor at Durham University. This is our first interview episode! Tune in as she unravels what we need to know in order to try to begin to understand propaganda and what p ...…
 
SciPie goes Sci-Fi: There are hardly any stories about a whole society being allowed to use time machines like we use planes today. Why is that? In our new episode, we talk about general relativity and Shakespeare oscillating between the literary figure he is today and a male version of an It-girl. We also give hints on how to destroy the finan ...…
 
When we want to describe a big number, we say things such as "almost the distance between the earth and the moon" or utter some other attempt to make the number understandable. But there are numbers which force us to up our game of comparing. In this episode, we enter into the field of homeopathy, a field with numbers that are so exceptionally ...…
 
Burnout, depression, or whatever you want to call it, seems to be omnipresent these days - but not for the first time in history. As we look back, we feature strange treatments, an exhausted population, what people feared sex had to do with it, the horror of the trenches and a time in which the people and their nerves didn't seem to be able to ...…
 
We are really, really excited about our second episode, which will be the first episode for us to tackle the fields of history and literature! During the 1930s, many well-known writers (among lots of other people, of course) had to emigrate from Germany to avoid being prosecuted by the Nazi regime. One of the most famous immigrants to America: ...…
 
Finally: Our very first episode! Getting to the moon today is a tricky business - it had been an even trickier one in the 1960s, during a time when computers tended to fill whole rooms. This is not a story about all that "First step for mankind" stuff you probably already know about. This is about what got all those twelve people to the moon. A ...…
