The (spoof) phone-in “Down The Line” on Radio 4 last week was brilliant! It featured a guest talking about science, with a particular focus on his dislike of string theory, and with the callers (the usual brilliant cross section of UK phone-in archetypes) taking the discussion all over the place: Doctor Who, soccer, “female scientists”, gay daleks, and so on and so forth.
My favourite question: “Why do they have to keep mucking about with the dimensions? I mean, there’s nothing wrong with the ones we’ve got already…”
It’s all a bit silly, but quite enjoyable (although maybe some aspects will be lost to non-British ears). Link here*. Listen before Thursday 14th or it’ll have been replaced with the next episode.
