The Scientists
The Scientists
Comedians and "scientists" Madelyn Freed (The Annoyance) and Blythe Roberson (New Yorker, The Onion) investigate a new scientific topic each month. From AI to romantic attraction to body decomposition, Madelyn and Blythe give an hour-long lecture with help from NYC's funniest comedians. At the end of every show, they bring out an actual scientific authority to pester with questions and to tell them where they went wrong.
