The team behind the Science Focus Podcast have launched two brand new series: Instant Genius and Instant Genius Extra.

Whether you’re curious about getting healthy, the Big Bang or the science of cooking, find out everything you need to know in 30 minutes with Instant Genius. We talk to world-leading scientists and experts to bring you a bite-sized masterclass on a new subject each week.

If that's not enough, you'll hear even more from our experts on Instant Genius Extra. On this subscription-only show, available on Apple Podcasts, we take a deeper dive into the topics covered on Instant Genius.
