Not an book, but a podcast

I like how someone gave 1 star because it's a podcast. It is clearly stated in the description that it is a BBC Radio 4 show, concluding that his review states more about him/her than about this show.
Now to the point, it is a perfect introduction for teens into science, while still beeing fun for adults, it involves just enough of controversial points (not really controversial to a scientific mind) and enough funny things in order to captate one's attention. Personally would have loved to be a bit more math intensive, but you'll never get that from this kind of show. But it still is a lovely piece to listen to and have a laugh, while giving you a bit to think.

Informative and entertaining

Would you consider the audio edition of Infinite Monkey Cage, Series 6, 7, 8, and 9 to be better than the print version?

Any additional comments?

Factual and funny. Brian Cox and Robin Ince are a great double act: the intellectual eye-candy and the other one!
I do not think that I have learned so much in half and hour. I only wish they would produce a longer edit of the recordings.
