Comedy, Science, & the Importance of Being Interested

March 21, 2022
Robin Ince


This week our guest is Robin Ince, a comedian, actor, and writer known for presenting the BBC radio show The Infinite Monkey Cage with physicist Brian Cox, his appearances alongside Ricky Gervais, and his stand-up comedy career.

In this episode we explore topics from Robin’s latest book, The Importance of Being Interested: Adventures in Scientific Curiosity, which takes readers on a tour through Robin’s scientific journey, his interviews with guests, and why he thinks it’s so important that we remain interested in science despite the commonly held view that its a distant and difficult subject reserved only for academics. Our conversation also explores the role of technology in all of this, and how it’s related to our relationship with science.
