"Michael Ian Black, Tom Papa and Seth Herzog are all incredibly skilled at capturing an audience, and we are thrilled to have such talented comedians joining us as co-hosts of Duck Quacks Don’t Echo," said Nat Geo's executive in charge of production Heather Moran. "Their humor and infectious personalities are an ideal fit for a series that encourages an interactive experience that makes science fun and entertaining."
