Noted everything Lawrence Krauss shares an ale with the Sci-gasm lads this week, to opine on the mysteries of the universe. And Star Trek.




Yale. Harvard. Sci-gasm. Lawrence M Krauss needs to introduction, but we can’t believe he’s sharing a jar with Wade and Byrne, so we’re going to milk it. The only physicist to have received awards from all three major American physics societies, and one of the few to be regaled for their genius while they’re still alive, Krauss is a scientist/author/atheist who makes you realise how little you actually know about the universe. So, feast on the salubrious mind (and voice) of the theoretical physicist and bezzie-bestie of Richard Dawkins as he waxes lyrical about science education in the modern world, and the inflationary theory of the universe, with a slight shift into Star Trek. Plus alcohol, plus fandom. (Also, unable to confirm that either of them tried to pick Krauss up. I would.)

The great man himself said: “The lack of understanding of something is not the evidence of God, it’s evidence of a lack of understanding.”

So get understandment, stupid.

The Sci-gasm podcast promotes scepticism, science and critical thinking, all through the ancient art of dick jokes. Whether it’s climate change or vaccines, or from GMOs to black holes, there’s nothing they’re not willing to discuss.

The Big Smoke will proudly be giving a platform to these two every fortnight (Science-God, help us), but if you need a sci-gasm in the meantime, find them on Facebook or Soundcloud.
