I truly enjoyed your "Science on the River" show
I truly enjoyed your "Science on the River" show as a literal and figurative trip through the different colleges and disciplines at Cambridge. It was a well-done metaphor that put the stories in an interesting context and gave me a fresh perspective on the varied areas of science and how they interrelate. As always, the show was informative and entertaining, although I have to say that the punts do look a bit tenuous.
Thanks for a great show.

Thanks and a joke for you!
Hi Chris, Helen, Dave and the rest of the crew.
After a recent scan through my e-mails I noticed my e-mail of thanks to you all hadn't sent so I thought I had better say thanks for the fabulous answers to my last question of "your top 5 science facts"...and as a consolation this is just a little something slightly condensed you might find interesting...
A top heart surgeon took his classic car for an engine overhaul where the mechanic spent a couple of days stripping it down and rebuilding it with all his care and attention...
When completed the mechanic called the surgeon to collect his car,
On collection the mechanic and surgeon began talking..
The mechanic started to brag and made the point that the engine is the heart of any car and he can rebuild an engine to give it a new lease of life and you being a heart surgeon, it seems odd that you are paid so much more than me for practically the same job....
The surgeon paid his bill and took his keys....as he walked to his car he began to chuckle....very true he said to the mechanic....but try re-building that engine whilst it's running...
Thanks to you all...
Congratulations on all your hard work!
For all the hard work I know all of you put in, I'd like to pass on some good feeling compliments. It should be assumed that these statements reflect my personal opinion, but my science friends tend to agree-
1) Your podcast is far beyond the rest in quality of content, production, and dare I say personality talent
2) Naked Scientist Podcast is the most attention keeping of all of the podcasts
3) NSP is NOT sensationalist, nor too dorky, or too dumbed down
4) NSP has momentum, but at the right pace, it doesn't rush past important details, but manages to keep things moving.
5) NSP is fun, it's funny, sometimes even kind of sexy, but not in a way that detracts from the stories
6) NSP content is as diverse as I could imagine
7) NSP is just the best -
CONGRADULATIONS ON ALL YOUR HARD WORK!!!!!
oh, and thank you so much !
being in touch with what highly curious and focused individuals are researching out in the world, and having it delivered by a cool group of fun but highly intelligent folks is just a dream come true in podcast listening-
David Dacaro ,
How can I download the text version of the show?
I'm loving your shows!
I was just wondering how I download the text version of your shows, if it is possible.
Gobi Muru ,
I love your podcast, and have listened to nearly every one that is on itunes.
How can I get your book, Naked Science, in the States?
Thanks for hours of informative entertainment!
We need more Kat on the show!
Hello, im 14 and i love your show, i listen to it to help me to sleep and also it kind of helps me with my triple science gcses so keep up the good work and i hope there is another ten years of the naked scientists, also i think we need to see more of kat on the show!!
Hi Chris & staff,
I just wanted to let you know that the podcast regarding Charles Darwin's letters really left an impact on me.
The readings (and reader) really delivered the message regarding grave times, how Darwin was as human as the rest of us ( and indirectly how severely the use of the English Language has degraded since then ).
At the beginning of the podcast, when you said "we'd hear this in 'his own words'", I thought I'd actually hear a recording of Darwin's voice (which sounded illogical, since I don't think recording devices were around back then?) - the reader of the letters did an outstanding job. - His delivery is what made it so special.
These types of letter readings - *IMHO* would really make a great regular feature to your show - it gives us a glimpse into the lives, times, and the mental state of the great scientists of their time. It lets us all know that "the greats" struggled to get their message out and some of them probably didn't know how big their impact was going to be.
Interviews with some of the great living scientists would be cool too (i.e.: Jane Goodall), with them reading from their books, or early letters, etc.

Donny R Rota ,
I only recently purchased my first ipod, a shuffle. I've filled it with only your podcasts.
Your show is filled with a lot of thought provoking and interesting tidbits which I use when teaching my Integrated Science form 4 & 5 classes.
The format and the show's presenters really do make science applicable and entertaining thereby making it easier for students and the layman to understand science.
I hope this podcast continues for a long time to come.
Your videos are awesome
hi my name is cayla i checked out your videos with my class my teacher is mrs.major your videos are awesome we all took notes and made a story out of it.
Urine goes into droplets
Check out the Mythbusters episodes on the subject.
One of the problems I discovered recently is that urine going out of our elevated tubes doesn't stay solid. The surface tension of the stream causes droplets to form rather shocking close to your penis (your mileage may vary).
Once that droplet is formed the path for conductivity becomes challenged.
The mythbusters had a really difficult time trying to make the third rail method work at all. They ended up cheating heavily.
