This episode was recorded when Science for the People was called Skeptically Speaking.

We look at the stranger side of science with Marc Abrahams, the editor of Annals of Improbable Research and creator of the the Ig Nobel Prize. Is science that makes us laugh better at making us think? And neurobiologist Dr. Richard Wassersug explains his research into the relative tastiness of Costa Rican tadpoles.
