Stuff You Should Know is the award-winning podcast hosted by Chuck Bryant and Josh Clark and produced by the venerable website HowStuffWorks. Twice weekly since 2008, Stuff You Should Know has released a mind-addling array of episodes, cracking open the mechanics, history and cultural and scientific impact of topics like: Ouija boards, asteroid mining, termites, the use of MDMA to treat mental illness, the game of horseshoes, gender reassignment surgery, what would happen if the Earth stopped spinning, Barbie(r) dolls, peak oil, the effects of going without sleep, bioluminescence, disco, icebergs, the fat tax and so on and so on, totaling nearly 700 episodes and adding two more every Tuesday and Thursday.

Over the years, Stuff You Should Know has grown beyond the podcast to include video series like Don't Be Dumb; a pretty good social media presence on Facebook and Twitter where Josh and Chuck chat with their fans, field suggestions and are told what they got wrong in any given episode; and a website, Josh and Chuck's home on the web, StuffYouShouldKnow.com, where they like to share examples of their interests in photos of abandoned places, old Halloween costumes, terrible ideas in history, and other neat stuff. They are also beginning work on a Stuff You Should Know book, which they intend to complete and have published before the end of the decade, they hope. They also played themselves in a short lived but much loved scripted TV show on Science channel.

Chuck and Josh live in Atlanta, though not together; instead with their wives, Emilie (Chuck) and Umi (Josh). When they aren't working - but really, in this day and age, when is anyone not working, you know? - Chuck plays in his old man band, as he's a bit of an amateur guitarist, and Josh likes to find and try new cocktail recipes, as he's a bit of an amateur mixologist. $25 All Ages

Every morning he’d watch one of these documentaries and afterwards he wanted to hear people and filmmakers discuss them. But after searching for a podcast devoted to discussing documentaries and interviewing people that love and make them he came up empty.

A Conversation with Noel Fielding and Bobcat Goldthwait
Noel Fielding will sit down with his friend Bobcat Goldthwait to talk about life, comedy and more, including discussing Noel's upcoming "An Evening with Noel Fielding" tour, hitting the Regency Ballroom on April 5-6, 2016.

A comedian, actor, artist and musician, Noel Fielding’s surrealist comedy and Rock & Roll style is utterly unique: Monty Python meets David Bowie. His shows are complete art pieces blending all of his influences - stand-up, characters, art and music - in fully-realized productions of his imagination.

Fielding rose to worldwide stardom as one half of "The Mighty Boosh," a multi-award winning comedy duo whose three season run on BBC TV was revered by critics and fans alike, leading to worldwide tours and arena tours in the U.K. NME called the Boosh, “the funniest comedy double act in Britain.”

Last year Fielding was a surprise guest performing on stage with Monty Python at one of their O2 Arena shows. For the past four years, Fielding has been a team captain on the legendary BBC TV show, "Nevermind The Buzzcocks," and he starred in his own TV series, "Luxury Comedy," which ran for two seasons in 2012 and 2014. Half live action, half animated, the series was described by The Independent as “inescapably whimsical,” and by The Guardian as “a neo-psychadelic riot of mirth.”
