About This Show
Show Info: Dr Heckle is a science communication/ comedy podcast produced by The OAM Network in Memphis, TN, that is designed at teaching a guest of note the details of a complex scientific paper in a 30-35 minute episode. Hosted by a scientist from University College London, England, the aim is to take the guest and audience further down the rabbit hole of a particular subject than conventional popular science shows. No prior knowledge of science is required by the guest, the challenge lies in the adaptability of the scientist to present the information in a way someone with no prior experience or knowledge could understand. A process that inevitably leads to bizarre analogies, incredulous frustration and hopefully a eureka moment.
