Take three top academics, some dangerous ideas, add one comedian and it’s the force of nature that is the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas (CODI). Hosted by comedian Susan Morrison, and now in its twelfth year, CODI is ninety minutes of rapid-fire research from some of the finest minds in the country.




Saving lives? Of those patients that survive ICU treatments, one in five will die within a year and many others are left with lifelong, debilitating conditions. Dr Ananda Mirchandani is on a mission to find out why.


What’s so radical about love? Dr Martin Purcell wonders what a world where ‘love is the answer’ might look and feel like, especially for young people trying to make sense of our crazy world.




Alphas, Betas and Chads! Incels are an online community of young men who bond through a destructive belief in their own inferiority. Dr David Smith met these men to ask: how they joined? Why they stayed? And how they left?
