SciShow Quiz Show: Dr. Lindsey Doe

In this episode of SciShow Quiz Show, host Michael Aranda test the wits of contestants Dr. Lindsey Doe and Hank Green.

Wow…how extremely observant. I wear the exact same glasses, but they’re painted with a clear matte nail polish to prevent them from reflecting the greenscreen and creating big holes in my head (or big pains in the butt for our production team.)

The nailpolish does gray them a bit, but otherwise they’re the exact same frames. For some reason I got them for free at LensCrafters after they messed up my prescription like three times in a row.

SciShow takes you behind the glare to understand the effects of artificial light and how we can fight this pollution of the night sky.
