The Cosmic Shed

War for the Planet of the Apes

August 14, 2017

Dr Ben Garrod
spent months living with primates and an evening with us in the Cosmic Shed as we turn our gaze to War for the Planet of the Apes, directed by Matt Reeves.


Sophie Pavelle, who was just back from completing the 300 miles of Sophie's Wild Cornwall, made her first appearance in the shed along with regulars Maddy, Ti and Andrew.

Ti, who is a huge fan of the Planet of the Apes series of films, gives us a fan's eye view of the trilogy before we all sit back and marvel as Dr Ben regales us with tales of the apes (mainly the non-human ones) he has known and loved, and not liked very much at all.


We had a lot of fun recording it. We hope you enjoy listening to it. As always, thank you so much for listening.

Sorry it's been so long!
