Introducing the lightly competitive knowledge showcase from the geniuses behind the YouTube series SciShow. Every Tuesday, join Hank Green, Ceri Riley, Stefan Chin, and Sam Schulz as they try to one-up and amaze each other with weird and funny scientific research... while not getting distracted. There will be tangents about video games, music, weird smells, surprisingly deep insights about life, and of course, poop, but it always comes back to the science.

SO MANY QUIRKY SCIENCE FACTS

I love this podcast--its hilarious and I get to learn all sorts of cool science facts I would never hear of otherwise! I frequently listen to this podcast (and Dear Hank and John or Delete This) when walking to lectures--sometimes I get weird looks for laughing out loud 😂.

I would love to hear an episode about archaeology--there are so many cool case studies to explore, both regarding scientific techniques and the crazy shenanigans people got up to in the past.

I love this pod!!

It does all of the things I loved about early podcasts - like listening to friends talking but you learn a lot at the same time. I would like more tangents ;)

It would be interesting to hear an episode on ways of predicting the future?

So much fun and so fascinating

This show lets you listen in on four hilarious friends talking about various science topics from week to week. They penalise tangents if they go too far off base but I find myself looking forward to the random thoughts when they come up. It's always a great time and always lights that fire of curiousity again. The universe is such a crazy and interesting place
