Buddhini Samarasinghe & The Dystopian Breadmaker


Covering Dec 1st - Dec 7th, 2017


This week I geek out with science writer, voracious reader & bread experimenter, Buddhini Samarasinghe from her home in London. Join us as we learn about her day job helping translate science into English, some of her thoughts on the state of scientific research,  the tragic end of her Runescape adventures, and a whole lot more!

Following the interview, Aalia Khan Yousafzai joins me to discuss your answers to the week's questions. We find out where you'd be stuck fictionally, what animals you'd love to transform into, the movies & TV shows you prefer to watch in groups, some very funny uses you came up with for chicken, the real locations in our solar system you'd love to visit, how your purchase of Icarus wings went, your examples of sentences that make no sense in 1997 and more!

Join us for our latest shenanigans and if you enjoy it, please subscribe and share us with your geeky friends! Oh and sign up if you want to be a guest!
