Comedians and "scientists" Madelyn Freed (The Annoyance) and Blythe Roberson (New Yorker, The Onion) investigate a new scientific topic each month at Union Hall in Brooklyn. 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.

A really rough diamond. I enjoyed the content for the most part, but the audio was spotty at best, and unintelligible at worst. The episode I listened to had slideshows with no descriptions of the visuals. Talk about frustrating! And clean lyrics? This rating needs to be changed because the episode I heard had the F bomb being thrown out freely in one segment. I'll come back to see if it improves.
