Summary

Josh Clark and Chuck Bryant started the podcast Stuff You Should Know back in 2008 because they were curious - curious about the world around them, curious about what they might have missed in their formal educations and curious to dig deeper on stuff they thought they understood. 

As it turns out, they aren't the only curious ones. They've since amassed a rabid fan base, making Stuff You Should Know one of the most popular podcasts in the world. Armed with their inquisitive natures and a passion for sharing, they research and discuss a wide variety of topics - always working to uncover the weird, fascinating, delightful or unexpected pieces of any given subject and then talking about it together in an accessible and humorous way. 

The pair has now taken their near-boundless 'whys' and 'hows' from podcast to audiobook for the first time - and with it comes loads of new content, covering subjects about which they've long wondered or wanted to explore in greater detail. Follow along as they dig into the underlying stories and interesting ways things fit into the world, touching on everything from the origin of Murphy beds, to the history of facial hair and the psychology of being lost. 

Have you ever wondered about the world around you and wished to see the magic in everyday things? Come get curious with Stuff You Should Know. With Josh and Chuck as your guide, there's something interesting about everything (...except maybe jackhammers).

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

It's ok, but the narration feels wrong

The content is fine, some interesting topics, but I don't feel that I works well as an audio book overall. It's probably the contrast to the conversational way we're used to hearing these voices, but the narration isn't very natural and sounds quite jarring, Josh moreso than Chuck. I would recommend fans of the podcast pick up the printed version and read it instead.
