BUZZ ABOUT THE SHOW

“Elizabeth Yuko provides a breezy, approachable introduction to the intimidating world of bioethics by ditching the big textbooks in favor of a few of your already-favorite episodes of The Golden Girls. As studied as a Dorothy Zbornak deadpan, and as goofy as a Rose Nylund St. Olaf Story, it's must-see TV-based scholarship!”  
– Eric Drysdale, 9-time Emmy-winning writer for The Daily Show and The Colbert Report

"Elizabeth Yuko is such a delightful cuckoo, and I'm not just saying that because it's an approximate rhyme. Her lecture on bioethics and The Golden Girls manages to be both hilarious and truly informative, which is a rare feat. The prepared lecture is terrific, as was her Q&A with the audience afterwards. Recommended for fans of the show, bioethics types, and anyone who enjoys a uniquely good time!
  –Carolyn Castiglia, Host of Right NOW! with Carolyn Castiglia; as seen on Comedy Central, VH1, MTV, HLN, & NickMom

“We were treated to a hilarious AND instructional talk called ‘Everything I Know About Bioethics I Learned from The Golden Girls,’ by Dr. Elizabeth Yuko.  ‘Twas a packed house where science geeks, sitcom lovers and med-heads laughed and cried until we were ‘thanked for being a friend.’"
Jack Feldstein, Filmmaker/Scriptwriter

“Dr. Elizabeth Yuko utilized the perfect blend of right brain/left brain instructional strategies!  The audience was actively engaged with a humorous performance with the fascinating juxtaposition of social justice and bioethics principles being imparted!  Elizabeth is brilliant, sexy and super funny!  The audience was left with an appetite for more!  Dr. Yuko is genius! Run to her next workshop!”
 – Joan Becht Willette, M.S. Ed., Educator and Literary Artist
