Sinead’s science podcast (now ended, achives only)

(produced by Rob Bowen at


When Sinead is not being a mad scientist or mentoring the mad-scientists-in-training in her group, she makes bean-to-bar chocolate. Sometimes she runs chocolate workshops under the name of "Doc Choc" that are equal parts mad science, rants about ecology and conservation, and a hands-on chocolate-making lesson. Worshops are run sporadically through Meadowlark 39 Cafe. Sometimes she just makes chocolate there and they sell it. 

You can download Sinead's extremely opinionated chocolate-tasting notes here. The opinions reflect her own, and are in no way endorsed by any reseach council anywhere, and also not by any chocolate-tasting council (if such a thing exists). This document is updated ... periodically.

These people have never funded me (despite my pleas), but they still do awesome stuff. I’m only a little bitter.
