A hint of the future
Reviewer Jarrod Hart

This pod/webcast gives us insight into how education may pan out in the information age. Here we can access to the heart of of the physics world and can literally hear from the horse's mouth about the fantastic revolutions in technology the last few centuries has brought.

Not only is Richard Muller steeped in that world of Nobel prize winning research, but amazingly he can still talk intelligibly and engagingly to undergrads without much background in science - and even make the topic fun.

This type of course - and this type of medium (pod/webcast) - is exactly the sort of thing we need more of to get more people into science - or at the very least to help more people to realise what a marvellous place our universe really is.
