In the first series, the team speak to Professor Jim Al-Khalili, theoretical physicist, author and science broadcaster, who also presents the BBC podcast and radio show The Life Scientific.

Over the course of six quick-fire 30-minute episodes, Jim gives a whistle-stop tour of the key ideas in physics.

They discuss the Big Bang, multiple worlds, time travel, antimatter and dark energy.

Jim won the inaugural Stephen Hawking medal for his work in science communication, teaches physics at the University of Surrey and somehow still finds time, together with his team, to publish research in the fields of nuclear physics and quantum biology.

Later this year, further series’ will cover the brain, health & wellbeing, genetics and much, much more!

Immediate Media Co.’s team is still recording its award-winning podcasts from their home offices, sofas and kitchen tables, with podcasts from BBC History Magazine, BBC Science Focus, BBC Sky at Night Magazine, BBC Countryfile Magazine, In The Moment, Bike Radar, olive and BBC Good Food magazine.

The podcasts cover a wealth of topics and are a useful guide to the world whilst staying at home.
