Adorable astrophysicists and bosom buddies Dr Amanda Bauer and Dr Alan Duffy tackle life, the universe and everything - but mainly the universe - in this brand new podcast from the Australian national broadcaster. They aim to break down the terrifying vastness of space into accessible bite-sized science, and have succeeded in doing so over three half-hour episodes to date, about the moon, stars, and our Solar System. Their nerd-banter is effortlessly winning - they aren't at all jaded about their own profession, so their learnings are proffered with genuine wonder - and slick production by Joel Werner lifts this to the next level. Eye-opening and mind-expanding.
