Ig Nobel day-after-Thanksgiving broadcast on Science Friday

Spread the word, please! Today, Friday, November 28, the Science Friday radio program will broadcast its specially edited highlights from the 2014 Ig Nobel Prize ceremony. It’s SciFri’s 23rd annual broadcast (SciFri began this day-after-Thanksgiving tradition in 1992, the Ig Nobel ceremony’s second year).

Listen to it on a public radio station, if you’re near one, or on the Internet. (Science Friday is broadcast as two separate, hour-long programs. The Ig Nobel broadcast comprises the entire first hour.)

The photos below, by Mike Benveniste, show the paper airplane deluge, a tiny, traditional part of the epic ceremony:

BONUS: Science Friday again asked journalist Carmen Nobel (yes, that is her name) to visit the Ig Nobel after-party. Nobel’s writeup, on the Science Friday site, is called “Who’s Got the Biscotti? Mingling at the Ig Nobel Awards After-Party“.

BONUS: Download your own copies of IgBill, the printed program for the 2014 ceremony, and the 2014 ceremony poster.

BONUS: From SciFri archives, here’s last year (2013)’s Ig Nobel broadcast.
