An irreverent look at the often over revered field of scientific research.
Nature Boy is also broadcast as a radio show in China Town (Los Angeles) over the prestigious AM bandwidth. More information can be found at kchungradio.org. DJ Michael, the Nature Boy himself, will be spinning hot wax and dropping mad science throughout episodes.
