Marc Abrahams and Friends: This is Improbable [AUDIO]

November 13th, 2012

Marc Abrahams — editor of the Annals of Improbable Research, host of the annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony, and author of several books (including his latest, This is Improbable: Cheese String Theory, Magnetic Chickens and Other WTF Research) — leads a lively exploration of weird science, off-beat research, and things that go bump in the lab. Members of the Berkman Center community along with a group of special guests perform dramatic readings from bizarre studies discussed in Marc’s new book, and answer questions about what they have read based on no special knowledge whatsoever. Does it sound odd? Yes. Does it actually work? Surprisingly well.
