Most barefoot runners know Daniel Lieberman from Chris McDougall’s best-seller, Born To Run.
Dr. Lieberman is a professor of Evolutionary Biology at Harvard who has done some seminal research on barefoot running.

While Dr. Lieberman is used to big deal academic situations, here he is on The Colbert Report.
