We did this show because Madelyn had a fever dream about a scientific study that may never have existed at all. If you have any information about it, please call 911. We truly figure out love in this episode with the help of the queen, Dr. Helen Fisher. Elna Baker, Patti Harrison, Alexandra Song, and Catherine Cohen thrill us with their little skits.

Hosted by Blythe Roberson, Madelyn Freed

Recorded Live at BRIC House May 2, 2017. Live sound and recording by Andrew Lulling and Evan Zierk at BRIC. Produced and edited by Shannon Manning for Good Orbit.

ABOUT THE SHOW
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.
