Historical: Swordswallowing and herring farts in Denmark

Danish TV2‘s “Go’ Aften Danmark” program welcomed two Ig Nobel Prize winners for a live interview. In this historic recording, the program’s host interviews Ig Nobel Prize winners Dan Meyer (2007 prize in medicine for co-authoring the medical study “Swordswallowing and Its Side Effects”) and Magnus Wahlberg (2004 prize in biology for co-discovering that herrings apparently communicate by farting). This video was recorded in 2009, during the first Ig Nobel tour of Denmark.
