Sci-gasm Podcast

About Sci-gasm Podcast

Sci-gasm's targeted audience is the kid who fell asleep in class who is now old enough to vote. Hosts Byrne and Wade don't hold back on addressing misconceptions (including their own).

Sci-gasm podcast: How does music affect your brain?

The power of Music, as the 1980’s discovered, is boundless. But what exactly does it do to our brain when it creeps beyond our ears? The lads at Sci-gasm endeavoured to find out. Those maniacs.



Strap yourself in as Byrne and Wade take a look at the complex scientific issues, from time travel and black holes to the wacky world of animal sex. They wish for your sci-gasm to be a pleasurable one.

In this week’s instalment, the lads are just two steel town girls on a Saturday Night, looking for the fight of their lives. Squeezing into the (substantial) sequin edges of their wardrobes, Byrne and Wade delve into the rolling sea of music, articulating how the phattest of beats affect our cranial parts. I just hope to Krauss they don’t sing. Ready the rain machine.

Don’t look at us; it’s your brain.



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 if you love them so much, prove it by giving them money on Patreon. It’s what they treasure above everything else. Except for peer-viewed graph smut.
