Recorded in a garden shed in suburban Bristol by science communicator Andrew Glester, the Cosmic Shed podcast is all about science and storytelling. It covers "films, books, music, theatre, TV", and anything else that catches Andrew and his pals' curiosity "from rigorously accurate science fact to ridiculously speculative science fiction".

As such, Liz and I were ideal guests for the podcasts, where we were quizzed about our motives for writing Furry Logic, our approach to story telling and how we divided up writing duties. There was, of course, also a fair bit about the stars of our book - the animals themselves, including red-sided garter snakes, octopus, loggerhead turtles and peacocks.

Andrew's a great host - genuniely interested but without trying to trip anyone up. I did enjoy his Donald Trump comment and Andrew even had me making several references to Birmingham City. If you're wondering how football got a mention, you'll have to give the podcast a listen. And if it piques your interest, don't forget to buy the book, which is now out in the UK.
