033: The Black Hole
A black hole is a region of spacetime exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing—not even particles and electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from inside it.  On this episode we explore and compare the various relations between the idea of black hole and the various challenges and fears we face on our daily life, both on our regular life and at school.

028: Dear Graduates, Are You Ready to Take Risks, Prove Your Passion, and Learn Fast?
Many of us spend our childhoods confidently answering the question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” When we respond, we do so unconstrained and driven by passion. We typically answer with creative or bold responses. Funny thing is, once we “grow up,” that confidence and boldness typically fades. Now that you have your diploma in hand, it’s time to take action. But how should you approach your transition from student to professional? Context by: Edvin Larsson

006: Be Proud Of Your Work And Take Credit Where It's Due
The major difference between our dreams and reality: dreams don’t compromise. They can be as seamless and outrageously unrealistic as we desire, whereas reality speaks for itself – although it doesn’t always have to be a world apart from our dreams – we are much more likely to experience some hiccups along the way. We can all be guilty of looking for fault where there is none. Sometimes things seem too good to be true, but there are other times when things are exactly what they seem.

004: How Do You Actually Pick a Degree Subject?
It’s all very well to say that everyone’s finding it hard, though, but what can you actually do about it? The truth is, there are quite a few different factors that come into play when you’re trying to decide what course to do – what A-levels you enjoy the most; what subjects you’re best at; what job you want to do (if you even know that yet) – and it can all get a bit muddled unless you break things down a bit.

003: How do I know I’ve picked the wrong course?
Lots of students find themselves on the wrong course and wishing they had picked something different. There’s no shame in admitting you made a bad choice first time around. Have confidence in your decision and if the little voice in your head is telling you to get out, then listen. Finding something which makes you happy and sets you up for a career you’ll love is the best move you can make. Thank you Lizzie Exton for your contribution!

001: What music to listen to when you're trying to get some work done.
If you’re looking for the right music to provide a stimulating background that doesn’t interfere with your concentration, here are a few suggestions that you might find helpful in your workspace. Music is one of the most powerful mediums there is, and anyone who says they don’t like music is probably lying. Of course, tastes and preferences differ and your favorite tune can sound like a cacophony to someone else.
