Science is more than just white coats and lab rats. In National Geographic Channel's new special, In The Name Of Science, hosts Jonah Ray and Angie Greenup probe the secrets of deception using the world as their laboratory and real people as their “specimens.” They explore studies of lying from the past and flip them on their side to see if they still hold up. These “experiments” are conducted on unsuspecting, everyday people using hidden cameras and the comedic timing of the hosts.
