Ask DR Science (He Knows More Than You Do)

Post by sfpcc » Sat Sep 23, 2017 11:48 pm

Does anyone remember a radio segment called Ask DR Science? It was a brief spot aired on NPR around 1996. Basically it was a smug professor giving inane incorrect answers to scientific questions. His catch phrase was "I Have A Masters Degree , In, Science! I think it's been gone for a while.

The box that many broadcasters won’t look outside of was made in 1969 and hasn’t changed significantly since.

I like Star Date too but there's not a lot of laughs.
