Have you ever wondered why stars twinkle? Or why the Earth is round rather than, say, square or triangular? Or even why we have earwax?

Science Drops! answers these and many questions in a quirky and fun-filled 90 seconds or less!

Find out why earwax is your friend; why flamingos stand on one leg; why buttered toast lands on the floor butter-side down, and how you can make it sure it doesn't.


Enjoy a fresh Drop every Monday and Friday!


Produced and presented by Colette Kinsella for Red Hare Media.

Science Drops! is now a proud member of The Warren podcast network, the home of some of the most innovative and remarkable podcasts in Ireland.

To celebrate, we'll be asking the hosts of some of the other podcasts snuggled up in The Warren to occasionally host a Science Drops! episode.

Today it's the turn of Liam Geraghty, founding member of The Warren and host of the wonderful Meet Your Maker - a culture show about the people who make the things we love.

So, if you'd like to hear more great Irish podcasts, then hop on over to where the kettle is always on.

Bring headphones. And carrots!
