Play

Occam's Barbershop is a weekly program on DCUfm, which is podcasted here. New episodes are broadcast live from the heart of the DCU campus online at www.DCUfm.com on Wednesdays from 4PM until 5PM.

This week, the Science Gallery takes over! We chat to the majority of the artists at their new exhibit, Surface Tension. It's pretty damn cool, and we love it. You should go check them out!

We also have the first ever winner of our Occam's Hotseat quiz! HUGE congratulations to Jillian, who was so good that we had to leave her on hold while we tried to find a harder final question. The prize she wanted was rather... odd... though. Listen in to find out what it was!

It should be noted that we REALLY want YOU to take part in the weekly quiz! If you feel like giving it a shot, send us an email at TheBarbers@OccamsBarbershop.com and we will vet you for inclusion in the show! We are attempting to get our hands on a cool prize. One thing to be noted is that you will have to be free between the times of 4 and 5PM on Wednesdays when we record the show. We look forward to hearing from you!

We are back on Thursday this week

In order to give room to some election coverage stuff, The Barbershop won't be back until Thursday. Back with coverage of the exclusive launch of the new Science Gallery show, Surface Tension. We interview the artists and scientists involved, and get some one-on-one time with the head honcho in the Science Gallery, Michael John Gorman!

Play

Today on the show we chat about topics which range from the American Cancer Society seemingly disliking atheist money, how a psychic was arrested on suspicion of extortion when she persuaded a 12 year old girl to steal $10,000 of her family's jewelry to remove a curse and how the world is going to finish ending this coming Friday!

Chair of the DCU Media Production Society, Robyn Keleghan takes what has GOT to be our most evil of Hot Seat quizzes so far, and Brendan finds out for once and for all if he'd make a good priest.

Topics discussed on this show include Steve Jobs' early death (and how woo may have contributed to it), Reddit's 'jailbait' controversy, and the Watson vs Dawkins debacle.

We done goofed

It seems that episode 14 wasn't recorded correctly, so unless we manage to dig it up, those of you who listened online are the only people who will get to know what madcap tomfoolery was involved!

Hopefully we'll find it though.

We also, of course, have the quiz.
