Harvard grad Emily Levine does for science what Jon Stewart does for news: she critiques it, she makes it relevant and she makes it funny. Whether as a comedian, a writer, a radio commentator or speaker, Emily updates her audience on Big Ideas from science and shows how these Ideas suggest changes in our social institutions, our business practices, even our everyday behavior. Now that recent studies show that humor primes the brain for those big leaps we know as “aha” moments, there is actual proof beyond the standing ovations that Emily’s brand of Big Ideas and Big Laughs can provoke and inspire as well as entertain.
