Everything from the curious to the serious. The Conversation, CC BY-ND4.16 MB (download)

Trust Me, I’m An Expert is a new monthly podcast from The Conversation, where we bring you the most fascinating, surprising stories from the academic world.

On this show, we ask the experts to bust the myths, explain the science and put the news headlines into context – and to do it in a way we can understand and enjoy.

Listen to our teaser episode, above, to get a taste of the amazing stories ahead: experts explaining the dark history of Australia’s Catholic-Protestant divide or what the research can tell us about sibling rivalry or same-sex parenting.

On our first full-length 30 minute episode, out next week, we’re tackling the same-sex marriage debate with experts on the law and on health, and talking to a Bible scholar on what the Bible really says on this issue.
