Sushma Subramanian is an assistant professor of journalism at the University of Mary Washington, where she advises the staff of the campus newspaper, The Blue & Gray Press. She is also a freelance magazine writer focusing on the intersection of science and culture. Her most recent stories are about the neuroscience behind her struggles to relearn her forgotten first language and the ongoing legal battle surrounding the unethical Guatemala syphilis experiments. Her work has appeared in Discover, Slate, Foreign Policy and many other publications. Her book on the sense of touch is forthcoming from the publisher Algonquin.

Adam Ruben is a writer, comedian, and molecular biologist. He has appeared on the Food Network, the Weather Channel, the Travel Channel, Discovery International, Netflix, and NPR, and he currently hosts Outrageous Acts of Science on the Science Channel.

Adam has spoken and performed at shows, universities, and conferences in more than 30 states and 6 countries. He writes the humor column "Experimental Error" in the otherwise respectable journal Science and is the author of Surviving Your Stupid, Stupid Decision to Go to Grad School and Pinball Wizards: Jackpots, Drains, and the Cult of the Silver Ball.

The Hypothesis
Do you like it when two seemingly unrelated things are smashed together? Are you a fan of fusion, nuclear or cuisine? Then you will love The Hypothesis, a science improv team who turns your favorite science facts into giggles and guffaws. Youll laugh, cry and maybe learn something along the way. And thats not too bad of an outcome.
Our hypothesis is that this will be a lot of fun. We need you, the audience, to be our data points.
Cast: Joe Dawson, Cecilia De Robertis, Tom Di Liberto, Nina Hsu, Margaret Lee, Jordana Mishory, Elijah Sloan, Ben Taylor
