The Infinite Monkey Cage: Robin Ince & Prof. Brian Cox. Click the image for BBC iPlayer

I’m really pleased to see that folks are embracing their inner geek and downloading The Infinite Monkey Cage podcast – today it’s number 1 on iTunes.
I’ve been lucky enough to snaffle tickets for a couple of recordings of the Radio 4 show. One at The University of Manchester (where the students were treated to the appearance of their most famous and elusive lecturer!) which featured Jon Culshaw doing his stellar (pun intended) impression of Brian Cox amongst so many others it felt like we really got our money’s worth with 20 people on the panel instead of 5 (the tickets were free by the way). The other recording was earlier this week at the shiny new Media City, which I’m hoping will be the location for many future recordings, as I can see the BBC building from my desk at work. My workmate and I sat inside the BBC Philharmonic’s new home (or the inside of a lilac bath cube as Robin Ince aptly described it) for an interesting show focused on the science of sound.

I’m excited to be going to see the cage door open next week at the Manchester O2 Apollo as the Uncaged Monkeys go on tour again.

About samigurumi

My crochet blog is a place where I can keep tabs on my projects and show the things I've made to people who actually are interested, so that I'm not tempted to whip out my phone and bore my friends silly with pictures of half-finished hats which is only half-finished because I've run out of the special organic DK yarn in shade blah blah and lot number yawn. I'll also be sharing some of my patterns for free. Ah, free, my favourite of all the prices.
