Be enthralled as brilliant scientists tell stories of their cutting-edge work. Real science told by real scientists with no notes, no slides – just great stories.

It’s all part of Ockham’s Razor – the ABC podcast for anyone with a compelling story of science. Expect a jam-packed evening of short talks to intrigue, excite and inspire.

Professor Geordie Williamson (Professor of Mathematics, University of Sydney) asks, “where do ideas come from?”

Dr Kate Selway (Earth Scientist, Macquarie University) seeks to unlock the secrets of the Earth’s composition from its surface.

Sheila Pham (Writer, Radiomaker, PhD Candidate, Macquarie University) examines whether we can use complexity science to improve the experience of pregnancy.

Dr Ursula Sansom-Daly (Clinician-Researcher, Clinical Psychologist, University of New South Wales) argues we need to bridge the divide between research and clinical practice.

Dr Dominique Tanner (Geochemist, University of Wollongong) investigates the mysteries of our mineral record – what can it tell us about climate change and evolution, and when can’t we trust it?

Naomi Koh Belic (PhD Candidate, University of Technology Sydney) takes a magnifying glass to predatory stem cell clinics.

Steve Cannane (Investigative Journalist, ABC) looks at the story of Scientology and science.
