Unnecessary yet fascinating details about everyday stuff which I did not know. It is so fun to listen to Helen, Matt & Steve spending about some nerdy stuff.

Great fun. A really nice way to get some Maths and science facts and discussions in your ears.

Been a fan for a few years now having "discovered" Steve and Matt at Cheltenham Science Festival. Always interesting, always funny and I always learn something.

Easily one of my favorite podcasts. Lots of wonderful, interesting tangents on tangents, and rambling about science and maths.


Series 3 is coming soon! Check out festivalofthespokennerd.com/tickets for details of our live shows in London and streamed across the world.

Looking for a science comedy podcast that doesn't skimp on the details? We've got you. One starting point sets off three different science stories from the trio behind comedy phenomenon Festival of the Spoken Nerd.

Stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, experiments maestro Steve Mould and geek songstress Helen Arney take a single phrase and use it to investigate things that might not seem particularly interesting on the surface, but become fascinating when you get down to the nitty and / or gritty.

Come for the Unnecessary Detail. Stay for the A Podcast Of.
