] a podcast featuring academics interviewed about their specialty areas by comedians in front of a live audience.
Here is a sample of the 15 interviews available:
Dr. Rick Weissbourd on Adolescent Moral Development
An astronaut who scuba dives under the ice in Antarctica, Dr. Jessica Meir
Dr. Anna Frebel, on Stellar Archeology (she's billed as "the Indiana Jones of the cosmos" on the site)
Dr. Jo Shapiro, an otolaryngologist
Harvard Metagenomicist Peter Turnbaugh
and Mefi's own Horace Rumpole discusses the fascinating world of Early Modern Books.
Funny, engaging and stimulating...even if you don't know what otolaryngologists and metagenomicists do! Have a listen
