This was a short lived podcast series sponsored by ANU. We covered interesting research topics out of the ANU specifically aimed at “potential graduate students and everyone else”. We stitched together interviews with factoids and “audio montages” to explain concepts, the series is our best attempt to imitate RadioLab, in an imitation-is-the-best-form-of-flattery type of way.
This is my favourite podcast created for the ANU, probably because it was so fun to make. In hindsight I think we managed to have a good balance between then nitty gritty of rock analysis and the bigger picture that these tiny rocks suggest.

This episode covers that annoying ringing noise some people get in their ears. It’s a pretty easy-to-make-interesting topic, because it gets into the interesting-by-virtue-of-being-itself topic: neurology.

This episode covered my thesis topic, fusion. We experimented with outsourcing voice actors on the internet, which worked surprisingly well, as you’ll hear from the DIY segment. It’s hard to explain so you’ll have to listen.

Rogue waves appeared in the news for a short time and I was lucky enough to be working on the floor above one of the authors of the source paper. We had a real challenge using only sound to explain how massive waves can be formed by chance.
