On this week’s episode host Christina Jeurling Birro speaks with geneticist, and host of the BBC Radio show Inside Science, Dr. Adam Rutherford. He has been the science advisor on World War Z, Ex Machina, and Annihilation, one of the most talked about films this Spring.
She is also joined by bestselling author Jonathan Abrams, who wrote “All the Pieces Matter: The Inside Story of the Wire”, the definitive oral history of David Simons groundbreaking show The Wire.
In a brand new show, adventurer-explorer Benedict Allen tells the whole unvarnished truth of his most recent adventure – a solo expedition to Papua New Guinea, during which he filmed his journey to visit a community he had befriended thirty years earlier – when he hit the headlines after failing to turn up for a flight to Hong Kong, prompting his friends and family, and eventually the world media, to become concerned for his wellbeing.
Benedict will recall the highs and lows of this awe-inspiring trip, tell exhilarating tales from his life as an explorer and show never-before-seen material from his travels across the globe.
‘Part of history of television’ – Mark Thompson, Former Director General, BBC
‘This is a hugely exciting venture for me. I can’t wait to travel the UK and share my experiences of some of the most testing, but also wonderfully inspiring, corners of the globe’ – Benedict Allen
