You can watch it here. Tons of funny stuff in Colbert’s segment on science, which starts roughly at 6:15 and runs to roughly 10:45. I was on for about three minutes, and was instructed: “No monkey business. No evolution.”
Of course, even though Colbert plays a rightwinger who thinks with his gut rather than his head and doesn’t trust book learning, the truth is that his show features a ton of science content and, indeed, is doing vastly more than most other parts of the media to improve the role of science in our culture.
I was thrilled to be on.
