UTND 011: The Ig Nobels a.k.a. science’s humour prize


CJ-Delling-Podcast-UTND-011-Ig-nobelsThe Ig Nobels are the anti-Nobel Prizes for research that at first make people laugh, then think.

CJ and co-anchor Geoffrey Windle chat about a few of the 2014 Ig Nobel categories (psychology, medicine, Arctic research etc. … or to put it differently: a painting of Jesus staying up late in a polar bear onesie with a nose bleed after slipping on a banana peel), as well as a compass on a leash, the great qualities of expensive ham, taking part in psychology studies, and pigeons and faces everywhere (i.e. on the surface of the moon).
