How Stuff Works: Stuff to Blow Your Mind
How Stuff Works: Stuff to Blow Your Mind
Prepare for a trip down the rabbit hole as Robert Lamb and Joe McCormick lead you on a scientific journey to the very limits of human understanding. “Stuff to Blow Your Mind” examines neurological quandaries, cosmic mysteries, evolutionary marvels and the technological underpinnings of our transhuman future.

About the hosts:
Robert Lamb spent his childhood reading books and staring into the woods — first in Newfoundland, Canada and then in rural Tennessee. There was also a long stretch in which he was terrified of alien abduction. He earned a degree in creative writing. He taught high school and then attended journalism school. He wrote for local newspapers before becoming a full-time science writer and podcaster. He served as senior writer and host at How Stuff Works and co-created the science podcast Stuff to Blow Your Mind. He has co-hosted the podcast since its inception in 2010. In his spare time, Robert enjoys traveling with his wife Bonnie to various museums and natural wonders, discussing dinosaurs with his son Bastian and crafting the occasional work of fiction.

Joe McCormick is a writer and a host of the science podcast Stuff to Blow Your Mind, on which he has had the opportunity to spend his days exploring bizarre fascinations such as techno-religions, prehistoric sea monsters and the origins of consciousness. He now lives in Atlanta with his wife Rachael and an extremely dangerous canid named Charles Darwin. In his free time, he likes to relax by cooking intolerably spicy food and settling down with a nice, stiff Atomic Age monster movie. Once when he was a kid, his supremely kind and generous grandmother let him crack open an old thermostat so he could get at the mercury switch. He is still grateful for this experience.
