Robin Ince The Importance of Being Interested

Tuesday 9 November 2021

Bear Pit Theatre

Comedian Robin Ince, co-presenter of Radio 4’s Infinite Monkey Cage with Brian Cox, quickly abandoned science at school, bored by a fog of dull lessons and intimidated by the barrage of equations. But, twenty years later, he fell in love with the subject and he now presents one of the world’s most popular science podcasts, meeting hundreds of the world’s greatest thinkers every year. In his erudite and witty style, he’ll reveal why scientific wonder isn’t just for the professionals, and explore why many wrongly think of the discipline as distant and difficult. From the glorious appeal of the stars above to why scientific curiosity can encourage much needed humility, he’ll leave you filled with a thirst for intellectual adventure.
