Stuff You Should Know
Want to learn something new while sitting in traffic? It’s as easy as downloading the ‘Stuff You Should Know’ podcast.

Hosts Josh and Chuck have done their research into a broad range of topics over the last 12 years – and I mean really broad. From Chaos Theory, to LSD, and how diabetes works.

Some of the topics are fascinating and some can fall a bit flat, but I guess it all depends on what you’re into. That’s why I don’t recommend listening to the show chronologically. Instead, I suggest scrolling through and finding a topic that floats your boat, like the episode “Why is it so hard to say ‘Toy Boat’ 3 times” (try it).

The durations vary as much as the topics with bite-size 10-minute snippets to hour-long chunky shows.

They don’t just pick themes out of thin air; they cover current topics such as COVID and the US election.

Subjects are put in simple terms without ever being condescending, plus one of the hosts sounds similar to comedian John C. Reilly, which makes it all the more entertaining.

Overall, it should make it easier for you to contribute to conversations in a meaningful way, or at least sound smart down at the pub.
