The BPP's Twin Radio Show

Today during The Most I reported that astronomers are close to discovering Earth's twin. As the article explains, "Momentum is building: Just last week, astronomers announced they had discovered three super-Earths — worlds more massive than ours but small enough to most likely be rocky — orbiting a single star."

The truth is, astronomers are pretty far behind. I actually found Earth's twin a few weeks ago. It just took a little snooping around with my telescope. Anyway, I looked into it further and found that on Earth's twin, there's a Bryant Park Project twin. That's right, a show just like ours, but on this other planet. I hooked up a satellite in my apartment in Brooklyn and recorded some of it. Check it out:

I don't know about you, but I can't tell the difference. (Kudos to Matt Martinez for turning this bit up to 11.)
