Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest

Believe it or not, your stinky sneakers may be in your favor for once! Usually when we smell a foul odor, we immediately crimp our nose, try to figure out what it is, where it is coming from, or better yet, get away from it! But for the participants at the 44th National Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest, stinky smells are bringing people closer together.

Rachel Herz, Ph.D. who is a neuroscientist and leading world expert on the psychological science of smell, shares more about the power of smell and how our senses react to the foulest of odors. She’ll be joined by the winner, Senneca Slocombe, who lets us know just how they got their sneakers so dirty!
