In mid-November 2009, I had a chance to be the "Ask The Expert" expert for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. I got the offer because of my job hosting Popular Science's Future Of on Science Channel, but was still a bit nervous about just what I'm an expert in. My friends spared no ridicule in asking the same question, but I did it, and I ended up helping a lot of people make some money.
I can't reveal what happened on the show, but I can say that the process was really interesting. I got a form from the show asking what areas I was comfortable talking about, and we taped a bunch of the shows back to back. As you can see from the photo above, I was at home. They bring in the experts via Skype video!
My episodes are airing all week, so check your local listings! It really was a lot of fun
