Stephen Colbert explores his deep ancestry

Christine, who works in the research lab down the hall from me, watches The Colbert Report, and told me about a segment on his show featuring Dr. Spencer Wells, head of the Genographic Project, which we have blogged about and participated in ourselves. Although I’m sure that the video reveals that Frank and Jesse did about their results were riveting, Colbert got a personal summary of his own DNA results from Wells himself, complete with a lovely graphics display.

There’s a bit of a twist at the end, so you can watch the video clip until Sept. 15th over at the ComedyCentral website.
