The internet is wide and chock full of video content. Scattered throughout this landscape are programs, shows, movies, documentaries and more that are of interest to, about, or otherwise for skeptics, rationalists, freethinkers and other science minded people. The goal of the project is to collect as much of that content into one place as possible. Hoping to make it easier to find programs which might appeal but were otherwise unknown or hard to find.
If there are any freely available programs or shows which you know of that I missed, please let me know about them.
Smarter Every Day 89 - How to Identify and Handle a Brown Recluse
You can’t kill these with pesticides. Fire. The answer is “handle it with fire.” I apologize if me killing a deadly spider in my daughter’s living space offends you. Check your house and keep your loved ones safe.
Think it through. Burning a very small spider with an exoskeleton increases the pressure inside, and makes it explode… killing it instantly. It’s the quickest way to dispatch it that I could think of. I had the same thoughts…. which is why I burned it with fire.

Gordon had to pay for his flight down to Peru and hasn’t made his money back yet.
Please donate something in exchange for his awesome work!
It took us 3 days to get the Highest Resolution image, so I took another walkabout on the second day. Interestingly, I ran into a guy who was repairing some of the wall. He said the Incas used Clay, Sand, and Quarz.
Gordon and I tried to capture Machu Picchu in a way that you could personally experience. We feel this is as close as you can come to visiting and exploring yourself.
Smarter Every Day 64 - Behind the Scenes at YouTube
The YouTube EDU Summit was an awesome summit at YouTube Headquarters where a bunch of us got together and tried to figure out what’s working and what isn’t in terms of online education. Personally, I enjoyed meeting new people and hanging out with friends. Seeing behind the scenes at YT was awfully fun. It’s always interesting to see how things work.
