One of the best half hours I ever heard on radio - Thank you Dr Ghose and Mr Friar.

Phelonius Friar (host)
Oh my... thank you so much Tony! I am playing the interview again because I think Dr. Ghose is amazing and rare in that she can do both great science and communicate what she does with others.

It's also the fact that she's not afraid to tackle the human side of doing science, and in specific the challenges faced by women in or even considering science (although she works to make it more inclusive a community for everyone).

Did my ears deceive me or did we really hear the great Brian Murphy from Chez on the sci-fi playlet?

Yes, tony, you did. Most of the cast, as well as Jeff Green were working at CHEZ when Jeff produced those shows.
