Adventures in Scientific Curiosity with Robin Ince

26 March @ 7:30 pm 8:30 pm

Adventures in Scientific Curiosity with Robin Ince

Comedian Robin Ince quickly abandoned science at school, bored by a fog of dull lessons and intimidated by the barrage of equations. But, twenty years later, he fell in love and he now presents The Infinite Monkey Cage, one of the world’s most popular scientific podcasts. Every year he meets hundreds of the world’s greatest thinkers.

Join him for this special Curious Minds event as he charts his own journey with science, explores why so many of us wrongly think of the discipline as distant and difficult and celebrates the importance of being interested in the world around us. 

Robin Ince is the co-creator and presenter of the BBC Radio 4 show The Infinite Monkey Cage, which has won multiple awards include the Sony Gold and Rose d’Or. In 2019 he played to over a quarter of a million people with Brian Cox on their world tour which has put them in the Guinness Book of Records for the most tickets sold for a science show. He is author of The Importance of Being Interested: Adventures in Scientific Curiosity and So Are You and also won Celebrity Mastermind but forgot that calcium was the dominant element of chalk. He is currently trying to invent an effective satnav for people who believe the world is flat.
