From the creators of Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! and Car Talk, Emmy-award winning stand-up comedian and author Paula Poundstone hosts Live From the Poundstone Institute, a weekly comedy podcast from NPR.
In each episode, Poundstone is on a quest to gather all of the world’s knowledge. Or, as she puts it, “to get less stupid, one topic at a time.” She looks to scientists, researchers and experts for evidence about everything from what music cats like to the fluid dynamics of spilling coffee. “Every week, we’ll keep looking for knowledge,” says Paula, “because we know we left it somewhere.”
Live From The Poundstone Institute tapes its podcast in front of a studio audience at Meltdown Comics in West Hollywood, CA.
