How long have you had your podcast?
What inspired you to become a podcast?
There are too many useless facts in my head! I thought this would be a safe way to vent them, so as not to annoy family and coworkers quite so much, but researching each episode just puts more facts in my brain.
What kinds of topics do you talk about on your podcast?
Everything from science-fiction to funeral practices, food origins to heroic animals, crazy legal defenses to the strategic butter reserve, and anything else that manages to catch hold of my squirrel brain.
What inspired the name of your podcast?
The old 80’s drug PSA “This is your brain. This is your brain on drugs.” It was almost called “But Did You Know,” though at this point I can’t remember why I didn’t go with that.
Which has been your favorite episode to record so far?
The sci-fi episode I recorded for father’s day is definitely one of my favorites (though some of the volume levels could use tweaking)
What is the most challenging part about podcasting in the genre you’ve chosen?
It feels like it’s not niche enough. I hear nerd/geek podcasters talking about doing panels and recording at cons and I get a little jealous.
Do you have any funny stories from podcasting?
(this is as close as I have to funny at this point) I had one episode damn near ruined by a foster pit bull puppy named Arya, who had been asleep until I hit record, then felt compelled to chew or knock over everything in site. Each time I came back to the mic, I sounded different, so the episode sounded Frankensteined together, even though it was from one session.
Do you sell merch or have any other links you’d like to include?
No, but people can get stickers by becoming supporters at patreon.com/yourbrainonfacts
Is there anyone you’d like to promote?
Interrupted Tales has recently launched an audio dromedy called Parasitecology that everyone should check out, but my drop-everything show is You’re Wrong About, which gives you the full story behind the headline makers of the 80’s and 90’s.
Where can we find you on social media?
