The podcast series You’re the Expert, which uses comedy to make academic research more accessible, will conduct a live recording at Vassar College’s Skinner Hall on Thursday, March 9, 7:00pm. This event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required.
In You’re the Expert, host Chris Duffy leads a panel of comedians through game show segments and hilariously misguided guesses to try to get to the bottom of what a distinguished scientist studies all day.
You’re the Expert was created by Duffy, a standup comedian and improviser who has performed at numerous colleges and festivals. Duffy, who also hosts the program, created the program for WBUR in Boston. A former fifth grade teacher and a writer whose work has appeared in the Boston Globe, Wag's Revue, and Makeshift Magazine, Duffy is also a staff writer for National Geographic TV.
Reservations will be available beginning Monday, February 20, by visiting http://creativearts.vassar.edu/. Tickets are free, but reservations are required.
This event is sponsored by Creative Arts Across Disciplines (CAAD), the Asprey Center for Collaborative Approaches to Science (ACCAS), and the Henry Grillo Science Fund.
