I'm guest hosting Dr. Kiki's Science Hour on Thursday!

Hey, who has two thumbs and is hosting Dr. Kiki’s Science Hour on Thursday?

Well, usually the answer would be Kiki Sanford, the host. Assuming she has two thumbs. I’ve never really paid that close of attention, honestly. But Thursday the answer will be: me! Kiki hatched a youngling, and so she’s off on maternity leave. She asked a few people to sub for her, one of them being me.


Dr. Kiki’s Science Hour is a live streaming video science talk show, and my shot at stardom will be at 4:00 p.m. Pacific time (23:00 GMT) on Thursday (tomorrow) March 17.

I’ll also have a very special guest on the show! It’s a secret, but here’s a hint: his name is ZACH WEINER!

The show can be watched LIVE at TWIT TV. There’s also a chat room there, so you can log in and ask questions, or you can ask via Twitter, but to be honest it’ll be hard to check the tweets during the show itself.

If you want to see what the show is like, I was guest a while back and the video is embedded there.

This will be a lot of fun! Zach and I will talk about science, web comics, ascii art (ahem!), and other stuff.

Please stop on by and watch! I guarantee, you’ll regret it. I mean, won’t regret it. Yes. Won’t.

    You never noticed that Dr. Kiki has two thumbs, Phil? Why, what else were you looking at? You’re not old, but, perhaps you could use a shower.

    I enjoyed your guest appearance a few months back (I’m a regular TWiT listener) and look forward to your attempt at guest-hosting.

    No, I’m sure it’ll be fine. Really. ūüėÄ

  4. Phil, why are you choking that poor android?

    ….waaait a minute.

  5. Richie

    Should be enjoyable

  6. Diederick

    That’s midnight for me in Amsterdam. Is there any way I can watch it afterwards, like, this weekend?

    So phil talking to a Weiner, this should be interesting.

  8. Cindy

    That’s how Phil makes sure he gets into Zach’s comic.

  9. J. R. Braden

    I never thought I’d see the day… Phil Plait choking a Weiner!

    Assuming she has two thumbs.

    Are they opposable ? That’s kind of important.

    Opposable is not in Firefox’s dictionary. Science FAIL, Mozilla!

    “That‚Äôs midnight for me in Amsterdam. Is there any way I can watch it afterwards, like, this weekend?”

    TWiT programs are recorded and put up on thier website. It sometimes takes a day or two but they get there.

    I wonder what would be more popular Phil talking to a Weiner or Kiki.
