SNL veterans Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer describe themselves as "frappers" — fake rappers. Working together as The Lonely Island, their new film 'Popstar' satirizes pop documentaries. Ken Tucker reviews Paul Simon's new album, 'Stranger to Stranger.' Science writer Mary Roach explores the curious science of humans at war in her new book, 'Grunt.' She talks about medical maggots and stink bombs, and new scientific developments that help keep soldiers safe.
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
