I found myself laughing like crazy as I drove in to work this morning ... and no, I am NOT crazy, but the podcast from Science Friday and the annual Science Ig Noble Awards that took place at Harvard made this morning's commute to work real fun! In fact, tonight I intend to watch the awards video via my computer hookup to my TV. I think we will make it a family event ... after all, it's not every day that you can:
- Watch "Win a Date with a Nobel Laureate"
- Listen to eminent scientists debate the virtues of "Yes" versus "No"
Nature magazine describes the awards in this manner: "Last, but not least, there are the Ig Nobel awards. These come with little cash, but much cachet, and reward those research projects that 'first make people laugh, and then make them think"
Finally, here is how I listen to podcasts in my car: Drivetime Podcasts
