#1325 Nerds & Laughter


This episode All the Best takes you to the Nerd Star Comedy Gala held in Sydney, where comics and academics joined forces in a night of laughter and intellect.  Jazz Twemlow reflects on the effects of drinking, time travel and ladies fashion after a big night out in Kings Cross and the ‘Planet Hunter’, astronomer Simon O’Toole, explores the question ‘is there life on other planets?’

We also share an excerpt from poet Tug Dumbly  as he reflects on Science and Poetry.

Thank you to Nerd Star Comedy Gala, Nerd Nite, Justine Rogers, Jazz Twemlow, Simon O’Toole and Tug  Dumbly for sharing their stories with All the Best.
