Underdogs on the Guardian Science Weekly Podcats

Note: Yes, I did notice my typo above but then decided it was far too delightful to correct.

This week on the Guardian Science Weekly podcats podcast:
"This week, the Science Weekly team discuss dark energy and the even darker matter of the gender gap with astrophysicist Sarah Bridle - recipient of a Women in Science fellowship. It's sponsored by a well-known cosmetics company - is it worth it? Do awards like this actually help to de-beard science? And isn't this a wider societal problem anyway?

Also in the show, we hear from comedian Bill Bailey about his admiration for the anthropologist Alfred Russel Wallace - the forgotten hero of evolution."

As you know, you can't herd podcats.

The company which makes the RSPB's podcast is called Podcats. In very poor taste that, I thought.
