The physics of superheroes? More science, please!

My speaking voice was once described as sounding like an Irish version of David Duchovny off The X-Files after a pot marathon of heroic proportions -- so maybe I'm not the best person to comment on how someone else talks.

But I have a teensy problem with Futureproof, Newstalk's otherwise-excellent science magazine show. And that problem is presenter Jonathan McCrea's voice.

Actually, that's slightly incorrect. There's nothing wrong with his voice: it's his accent I don't like listening to. Futureproof is a very entertaining and informative show, and most welcome to the schedules. But man, that accent wrecks my head.
