Have you ever wanted to perform sonic experiments with your morning coffee? Spice up your love life with inspiration from the animal kingdom? In conversation with Helen Arney and Steve Mould they discuss their rib-tickling, experiment-fuelled book The Element in the Room, a book for anyone sci-curious who wants to explore the science that is staring you right in the face.

Steve Mould and Helen Arney, aka two-thirds of the Festival of the Spoken Nerd, have a combined 35 million YouTube views, their own Radio 4 programme, Domestic Science, appeared in three consecutive slots of the latest series of QI and toured their stand-up science show to over 15,000 people in the UK.

Come along for the lunchtime talk ahead of their evening show at The Cornerstone, Didcot where they will be performing Festival of the Spoken Nerd – You Can’t Polish a Nerd.

For ages 16+
