REVIEWS

Off the Top 2015 ★★★★
Baba Brinkman (science rapper, Fringe First winner, and half the cast of Off The Top) really loves his wife. His adoration radiates off him in a warming glow and is very much welcomed by his flustered, soggy audience (the great Scottish weather had not been kind that morning) who...
Baba Brinkman - The Rap Guide to Religion 2014 ★★★★

The Rap Guide To Evolution 2009 ★★★★
There are big names behind this show which starts with some stunning visual film sequences from the Wellcome Trust. Dr Mark Pallen, author of The Rough Guide to Evolution, made sure it had sufficient scientific rigour and it stars Baba Brinkman, one of the world’s great intelligent rappers. The...
Rap Guide to Human Nature 2010 ★★★★

Baba Brinkman - The Rap Guide to Religion 2014
Baba's unique brand of 'peer reviewed rap' brings together hip-hop, comedy, and behavioural sciences, striving to make sense of nature's most unpredictable primate. So what about religious beliefs? Do they provide an evolutionary benefit, or are they nothing but a virus of the mind? It's time to...
