So, when anyone tackles the pursuit of truth in a balanced, researched, unbiased and amusing way, I pay attention. Especially when they are also amazing people in real life. I got to catch up with Mitch and Greg at camp this past weekend, the duo behind ASAP Science. What can I say? They're smart, and I trust their mad research skillz. They're not bad with a white board and dry-erase markers, either.
I've included some of their videos on this blog already, like the one about sleep. And when I try to get science-y myself, to figure out or explain things like Ghrelin and Stress, I think about how they might pare it down to the simplest explanation and infuse it with humour. Because, let's face it, to tackle topics like morning wood, why babies are so cute, or whether silent farts are worse takes a sense of creative whimsy.
Whether you're ready to unleash your inner science geek, want to waste time on YouTube but are sick of videos about cats, or just want to understand answers to burning questions about daily life, Greg and Mitch have done a great job of making science entertaining and accessible. Check out all the cool videos they've made on the ASAP Science channel.
