Bottle-Cork in Your Eye (podcast #100)

What’s the damage from a sparkling-wine cork whanging into a merrymaker’s eye? A research study explores that very question, and we explore that study, in this week’s Improbable Research podcast.

This week, Marc Abrahams discusses a published here’s-cork-in-your-eye study. Physicist Melissa Franklin lends her voice, and her scientific expertise, and her opinions —with dramatic readings from a research study you may have overlooked.

The mysterious John Schedler or the shadowy Bruce Petschek perhaps did the sound engineering this week.

The Improbable Research podcast is all about research that makes people LAUGH, then THINK — real research, about anything and everything, from everywhere —research that may be good or bad, important or trivial, valuable or worthless. CBS distributes it, on the CBS Play.it web site, and on iTunes and Spotify).

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
