We were written up in the rather wonderful US science magazine "Discover" recently. Here's the link:

Chris nice article and keep the good work up.
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

hey!  way to go.  glad to see you getting some press on this side of the pond.

have you ever had any interest from US radio stations interested in picking up the show?  with how popular National-Public-Radio's "Science Friday" seems to be, I can't believe the stations wouldn't be looking to pick up more similar programing.  And they do syndicate a fair number of other BBC programs.

I'd love to flip on my radio and hear some naked science coming across.

The same journalist described the lead singer of a band I was in as sounding like "an owl being attacked with a kitchen knife"

the question is.... were these statements meant to be complimentary or not?  (could totally be either depending on the style of music)
