What's in this episode?

 

We are back podcast fans! A bit of a gap in the schedule due to festival distractions, travelling and being asleep. Now, a whole raft of new content for your ears - YAY! 

This episode couldn't be more timely, whilst CERN throw out an associate for being silly about women in Physics, and whilst a woman in Physics wins the Physics Nobel Prize, Dr Jess Wade takes to the stage to tell us all about the history of polymaths and why we should all be more polymathematical. So throw off the STEM/ARTS armoury and embrace one another! 

Also - find out who won our pitch competition and an edtech podcast mug from Vista Print. :)
