There is a new science podcast doing the rounds specifically aimed at biologists with a sweet tooth for metal music. The appropriately named Brutal Biology features a prominent scientist/researcher/thinker each week and focuses on getting to know the person behind the ideas and the research. So what starts off as a scientific discussion often diverges into personal stories and obscure conversations interspersed with explosions of hard-core metal.
And just in case you needed an extra reason to check it out, I am on it this week! We discuss everything from research and university culture, to video game developers as artists. Check it out below or on SoundCloud and keep up to date with Brutal Biology on Twitter and Facebook. Just make sure you have your fingers on that volume dial because those musical interludes can get the jump on you!
