Hosted and produced by Chris Duffy and presented by WBUR, this is You're the Expert, the show that brings academia out of the Ivory Tower and into your iPhone.
Each episode of our show features a guest expert. Some of the funniest comedians around try to figure out what our guest studies and to understand his/her findings. The only rule is that they’re not allowed to do any research ahead of time. You're the Expert is funny, it's surprising, and you might even end up learning something.
