shows // Let's Get Physical
All the things you wanted to do as a child but you couldn't, because you weren't old enough and you didn't have the money to buy depleted uranium.
Expect to find out how the entire universe works. Or at least the interesting bits. As well as guides on how to build things at home to maim or trap your flatmates, there will be interviews with some of the University of Glasgow's greatest minds, or at least the ones that agreed to come on the show.
Find out about inventions and discoveries on the frontiers of science, sometimes lightyears before they even happen.
All this with a sprinkling of music interspersed between the explosions.
wiki wiki - rollin' n scratchin'
Hello fans! Let's Get Physical returns with more science, as per usual. Turntable science to be exact. The Ghetto Scientist will be on our next show dropping science all over the place. This episode will feature the basics of how DJing actually works - how vinyl is made, how the turntables work, a bit of sound, mixing and a bit of scratching. Wiki wiki!
With guest Kirstin Norman.

saving party party
This week on Let's Get Physical we have two very special guests with a very special mission. We have Professors Henrington and Windimire, of Subcity Sci-Fi fame, in the studio to undertake a daring time-travelling mission to the depths of the past in an audacious attempt to save Party Party. As you probably already know, Party Party have been banned from the Subcity internet-waves for crimes against nature. But the Professors have uncovered evidence of an evil plot and are determined to clear Party Party's name by travelling back in time and stopping the offending broadcast from ever happening. Will the Professors manage to solve the 4 dimensional time sudoko? Can they stop the broadcast? Will they unmask the evil-doers? Can Party Party be saved? Find out next week on Let's Get Physical!
Join us on www.subcity.org at 1pm Thursday 15th April for the return of Subcity Sci-Fi and the possible restoration of Party Party to their rightful place on the Subcity schedule.

explaining xkcd to non-nerds
In this episode of Let's Get Physical Ru and Ciaran will be explaining jokes from xkcd.com that non-nerds (mostly arts students) don't get, to enlighten them. If you don't quite understand a particular xkcd comic strip then during the show email us on email@example.com with the number of the comic in the subject header or text 'subcity' then the comic number to 07766 40 41 42. Maybe our lovely producer Laura will come into the studio to chat about what xkcd jokes she doesn't get. Oh plus some pure bampot tunes.

fruit-based technology chat
This week on Let's Get Physical we looked at the technology (or rather marketing) company Apple and how they grew from humble beginnings in a car hole. Ruaraidh was on the anti-apple side whereas Ciaran was supposed to be on the pro-apple side. Ciaran's stance was essentially each to their own in the end. Ruaraidh was given the hardware side to research, Ciaran on the software. Just so you know to skip past whatever Ciaran was saying.
