The Big Idea podcast gives the University an innovative way to share its big ideas with the world.
Building on Edinburgh’s tradition of providing a home for inquisitive minds such as Charles Darwin, David Hume and Peter Higgs, the Big Idea Podcast is a forum for contemporary thinkers to exchange their work and expertise with each other and listeners.
Each month a group of academics from different parts of the University gather to discuss a special theme, ranging from Scotland’s future to the power of perception.
Since its launch the podcast has gained listeners from around the world, from the USA and Australia to China and Saudi Arabia.
