Publisher's Summary

The Museum of Curiosity is BBC Radio 4's monumental comedy edifice, and the only one with gargoyles in the foyer. It allows nothing inside that doesn't make you scratch your head, stroke your chin or, at the very least, go 'hmm'. Fortunately, helping to fill its vacant plinths is a gathering of the world's most original minds.

Among the guests bearing donations to the museum in these 25 episodes are Neil Gaiman, Sarah Millican, Clive James, Kate Adie, Sir Terry Pratchett, Ronni Ancona, Jon Ronson, Bettany Hughes, Ben Elton, Francesca Stavrakopoulou, Alain de Botton, Charlotte Uhlenbroek, Alistair Fothergill, Ruth Padel, Jonathan Miller, Lucie Green, Marcus du Sautoy, Sara Wheeler, Brian Eno, Shappi Khorsandi, John Hodgman, Chris Addison, Roger Law, Tim Minchin, Philip Pullman, Richard Wiseman, Victoria Finlay, Simon Singh, Jimmy Carr, Graham Linehan, Sarah Bakewell, Robin Ince, David Eagleman, Natalie Haynes, Brian Blessed, Alan Davies, Gareth Edwards, Martha Reeves, Harry Enfield, Helen Scales, Admiral Alan West and many more.

In addition to all the episodes from the first four series, a previously unbroadcast pilot episode, The Professor of Curiosity, is also included. Running time: 12 hours approx.

    "A disappointing collection"

    normally I'm a huge fan of the QI team and the radio version of this is superb, however I can't recommend this version. Episodes just cut off in mid stream and without warning. After speaking to Audible tech support it appears to be a problem with the recording of this item. so I heartily recommend you don't buy this item until they fix this problem or you won't get a whole episode in the collection.

    "Episodes are cut short"

    The next episode starts before the previous episode has finished! Takes the shine off a very enjoyable series.

    "Sort out the problem!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really enjoy this radio programme but only came across it a couple of years ago so it is great to be able to go back and listen to the early episodes. However, as noted by other reviewers, the first two end mid-episode. If it really is a problem with the original recording (and I don't believe that) then Audible should WARN PEOPLE in the audiobook description. If not, it should be updated so that we can download the complete audiobook we paid for.

    Don't let this put you off downloading the audiobook. At least you know to expect the abrupt end to several episodes. The programmes themselves are great fun.

    "Abrupt endings"

    Listened to 2 eps so far and each one cuts off mid-sentence. Funny but disappointing.

    "Episodes suddenly cuts off "

    Many chapters suddenly ends in mid-sentence. The host would ask an interesting question, Bill Bailey would begin to answer, and then after 4 words, the chapter ends. Lousy editing.

    Loved the show. Hate that each episode is INCOMPLETE. Hopefully an update is coming to fix this mess.

    "Very enjoyable"

    Very entertaining and packed full of both fascinating and funny facts. Also a great introduction to other potential good reads available from the guests on the show.
