Joe Genius, a new web-based science show


This online show by the folks at Discover Magazine looks pretty slick.

It’s time for Joe Genius: Where backyard science goes BIG TIME. Joe Genius highlights home-grown Einsteins who experiment, tinker, and yes, blow stuff up in the name of science. And it’s all caught on tape! Join Jonah Ray as he whizzed through these geniuses’ most epic failures and thrilling successes — and of course, the science behind it all.

I like how it’s smart and accessible to both kids and adults — and as obnoxious as the commercials are, a bunch of people gotta get paid to make shows, so I can accept it. What do you think, readers?
