For centuries, public lectures at the Royal Institution have enthralled audiences with the latest science discoveries, news and issues. Over time, cutting edge technology has been used to preserve and share the lectures beyond the walls of the Ri, from the Proceedings of the Royal Institution in the early days of printing, to the CHRISTMAS LECTURES being possibly the first ever science programme broadcast on television, to the popular YouTube channel that reaches millions around the world today.

The Ri Science Podcast continues this tradition of sharing the regular science talks freely and widely. Each fortnight a classic recording will be released, delving into diverse topics from alien life to consciousness, and particle physics to ecology.
