Robin Ince How to Build a Universe

Robin Ince: The Infinite Monkey Cage
– How to Build a Universe

The Infinite Monkey Cage, the legendary BBC Radio 4 programme, brings you this irreverent celebration of scientific marvels. Join us on a hectic leap through the grand and bizarre ideas conjured up by human imagination, from dark matter to consciousness via neutrinos and earthworms.

Grenfell Tower fundraising latest – our total is now £6,200

We have now raised £6,200 for those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire. Once again, thank you all for your donations and auction bids. Also, thank you to the many authors and publishers who donated items to auction or for prizes.

All the funds raised are being donated to the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation, an independent charity founded in 2008, which is working with all the other charities supporting the Grenfell Tower residents.
