Check out my crowd warm-up from the top of the show!
Last night Science Friday hosted their first trivia night at The Bell House in Brooklyn. It was a sold-out, rowdy crowd, and I had the pleasure of hosting the evening with Science Friday's host, Ira Flatow. We had over 50 teams, including "pro-teams" from Scientific American, Space.com, Popular Science, AMNH, and Business Insider (who was the butt of all the jokes). In an UNBELIEVABLE turn of events, Business Insider pulled ahead in the final round and won the evening! Their prize was a signed photograph of Ira in a silvery heart frame. The last place pro-team, Popular Science, was awarded a large amount of Business Insider stickers.
My favorite moment of the evening was when the Business Insider representative took the stage to accept his prize. "Can I say something?" he asked. He took the mic, and revealed to the room he was a former employee of the losing team, Popular Science. He said winning the photo for Business Insider was his greatest victory. I agree!
