"Stuff You Should Know" (TV show) on Science Channel is a genre-bending television series about a real podcast that's set in a fictional world. Let us explain ... Josh Clark and Chuck Bryant are two real guys — uber-popular podcasters and actual Discovery Communications employees. Their podcast, also called "Stuff You Should Know," is in the top ten on iTunes with more than five million monthly downloads. Science Channel will follow Josh and Chuck inside and outside the recording booth in the series, which combines all the delicious informational nuggets of their podcast and wraps them in deadpan mockumentary-style humor. Along for the ride are a wide array of guests making cameo appearances, including John Hodgman, Sarah Silverman, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Rufus Wainwright, and Michio Kaku.

Each episode takes place at HowStuffWorks, a podcast factory where Josh and Chuck tackle modern life and corporate culture while also juggling their insatiable thirst for peculiar knowledge and wacky curiosities. The actual podcasts — which discuss topics from zombies to artificial intelligence to alien hand syndrome — are woven into each plot where scientific facts collide with Josh and Chuck's sublimely ridiculous adventures. "Stuff You Should Know" is a totally unique and highly entertaining series blending cerebral wit and sarcasm with illuminating insights on addictively buzzable subjects.

"Stuff You Should Know" is produced by School of Humans. L. C. Crowley is director and executive producer for School of Humans. Julie Smith is executive producer. Rocky Collins is executive producer and Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production for Science Channel. Debbie Adler Myers is General Manager and Executive Vice President of Science Channel.
