Sci Guys

Sci Guys is a podcast all about the weird and unbelievable ways that scientists learn about the world around us. Each week, Corry (@notcorry) tells the story of a particularly strange scientific study while his friends Jamp (@jampkin) and Luke (@lukecutforth) do their best to derail the conversation with questions, jokes, and whatever nonsense they can think of.
