Duck Quacks Don’t Echo  challenges the validity of weird, unusual and over-the-top hypotheses. An example: can shrimp run longer than the average human?

Co-hosts Michael Ian Black, Tom Papa and Seth Herzog present their best theories then put them to the test with real experiments. The show is fun science that challenges the absurdities of science. The first episode features the Hovercraft Grand Prix. Is it really possible for bacteria from a flushing toilet to reach a toothbrush sitting on a bathroom counter six feet away? The experiment’s disturbing results test the urban legend. Can you eat six saltine crackers without taking a sip of water? Tom challenges Seth and Michael. Can it be done?
