Well, okay, science has been running the world, or at least a good bit of it, since the beginning, but for the next two weeks SciShow, one of the programs I write for, is taking over the country.
We’ve got ads running on actual television, billboards plastered on buses and in subways, and we’re running a special episode-a-day series for the next two weeks, answering the world’s most asked questions.
I wrote today’s installment: What is Love? (Baby don’t hurt me.)
Yeah, kinda like the meaning of life . . . not the easiest topic to attempt to explain in three minutes. Shoot, I didn’t even get to quote Shakespeare or Marvin Gaye. I did successfully get Haddaway stuck in my head for a few days though.
Anyway, it’s nice to see SciShow getting some more national attention and love from Google and YouTube. We work hard to produce a wealth of original, fun, and educational content, all available for free. I mean, I work in a bubble — from home in the woods, usually in slippers and sweatpants. But knowing curious people all over the world are watching our episodes, learning something, hopefully chuckling, occasionally correcting us, and in general getting psyched about science . . . well, that means everything.
