Physical Attraction

Maybe you've seen a thousand science documentaries and you're tired of hearing about the same subjects; or maybe you don't know the first thing about physics, but would love to learn. My aim with this show is to explore the vast range of topics in physics, from quantum mechanics and relativity to the physics of stars, galaxies and black holes. We will explore brand-new topics in science and technology as I learn about them. Whether you know the story already or are learning it all for the first time, my aim is to "educate, inform, and entertain!" 

We are a physics podcast. But not just a physics podcast - interviews with scientists, scholars, authors and reflections on the history and future of science and technology are all in the wheelhouse.

We have a sister podcast, Autocracy Now, which deals with the lives of famous historical dictators. (Why host one podcast when you can host two?) You can find some of their episodes on our feed, or the show itself at

So, it won't come to any surprise to any of you to realise that - while I've researched all of the various ways the world might end - I've found an awful lot of ways the world CATEGORICALLY WON'T END. 

From Raptures gone wrong to Nibiru, the planet that does not exist and will not crash into Earth, this episode eases the drama a little bit by going through some of the end-of-the-world predictions that didn't come true. 

The second half of the show will be available via the website as a premium episode; get in contact with me via the website (after donating your $3) or subscribe on Patreon. Help support the show, help support indie podcasting, help us cover our hosting costs (which far outstrip any donations we get) and show your appreciation for all the free entertainment I've given you so far... 

At least, I hope it's entertainment. It's certainly free.
