The Challenge

Created by virologist Dr Chris Smith in 2001, The Naked Scientists is a company made up of award-winning doctors, scientists and communicators who bring science to the masses through a series of creative and engaging podcasts. Receiving 'The Ten Best Ever Podcasts' accolade in The Telegraph newspaper in 2015, the Cambridge-based programme is one of the most popular science shows in the world.

Delivering scientific and educational podcasts to a global audience, The Naked Scientists needed a partner to provide a trusted and reliable solution with a fast connection that was also cost-effective. The company approached UKFast in search of a strong partnership with support as well as a robust solution that could cope with a high volume of downloads.
