VS: Episode 329: Justin O. Schmidt

The inventor of the pain index finds out if he can tolerate 30 minutes with Scott and Mike. Nobel Prize winner Justin O Schmidt comes to our show this week as we discuss his entomology career and the thought process of creating the Schmidt Pain Index for insect stings. We discuss his research into insects, stories of going through the pain, the media on murder hornets, and his thoughts on people mimicking his work and getting stung on purpose. Check out his book The Sting of the Wild after you enjoy this interview


We also talk about Howard Stern’s ridiculous possible contract,  Craig Carton, and play a game of Mt. Rushmore.
