Yes that is right, Colbert is now obsessed with Microbes. He has started a new report ... "The Microbe Beat". On this first one, Colbert discusses Martian Microbes, Penicillin and other microbial things. This is perhaps the greatest coup for getting microbes the recognition they deserve since, well, since ever. Please make this the most watched Colbert video ever.
Thanks to my PhD student/employee Jenna Morgan for pointing this out.
