About Us

Let us answer all the questions you're afraid to ask. Each episode we ask experts the embarrassing questions you've been thinking about your whole life. What does the Queen even do? Why do triangle sandwiches taste better? What happens if you put hand cream on your face? They say there's no such thing as a stupid question, so it's time to put that theory to the test.Afraid to Ask is brought to you by the Auckland University of Technology (AUT)
