Science presenter, comedian and geek songstress Helen Arney appears on TV, radio and in theatres across the world. You might have seen her explaining physics while riding a rollercoaster for BBC Coast, singing the periodic table on Channel 4 News, hosting Outrageous Acts Of Science on Discovery or smashing wine glasses with the power of her voice in Festival of the Spoken Nerd.
We (that is Matt, Steve and me as Festival of the Spoken Nerd) are recording our first comedy series for BBC Radio 4 next month: “Domestic Science”.
Cue excitement! And sound effects!
The recordings are 10th and 20th May, with an afternoon read-through for a very select audience on Friday 6th May at 3pm. If you can join us at any of those we would love to see some friendly faces there. Tickets for the 6th are available now, but you need to follow our twitter feed and Facebook events to get tickets for the actual 10th May and 20th May recordings.
The shows will be broadcast some time in July on BBC Radio 4, and downloadable from the BBC Radio Player for 28 days afterwards. I’m told you can listen to the Radio Player from anywhere in the world, so no excuse not to tune in once they’ve been broadcast in the UK!
If you’d rather see me doing something live, I’ve got a heap of festival appearances coming up: Udderbelly Festival on the South Bank, Imperial Festival, Devizes Festival, Cheltenham Science Festival, Oxfordshire Science Festival, Nine Worlds Convention, Solarsphere Music & Astronomy Festival and the new Blue Dot Festival at Jodrell Bank Observatory.
