Pubic Lice, on The Daily Show

In February 2013, The Daily Show invited me to come to New York, to talk about my (still continuing) efforts to collect pubic louse specimens for the collection of the Natural History Museum Rotterdam. It was a pleasant experience to work with the professionals that produce this comedy news show. They even brought me to  trendy bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The item aired on April 8th, 2013. Watch it here, or click on the image.

The feared demise of the pubic louse is old news. It dates back to 2007, but the subject was revived again in january 2013, by a Bloomberg report.
