The Weirdest Thing I Learned This Week

Here at Popular Science, we write (and read) dozens of stories every week. And though many of the fun facts we stumble across during our research make into an article, something always hits the cutting room floor. But we still want to share that information with you. So, welcome to The Weirdest Thing I Learned This Week, a podcast from the editors at Popular Science. Every episode, our panelists will share the weirdest fact they learned that week and the story behind it. At the end of the show, our hosts will all vote for their favorite fact and declare a weekly winner, who can definitely say they learned the weirdest thing that week.
