When I sit down to have lunch with our kids, I typically watch my favourite science shows on YouTube. I have three (give or take):
- PBS Eons;
- SciShow (along with SciShow Space); and
- It’s Okay To Be Smart.
I’m pretty sure our kids enjoy the shows, I certainly do. I also realised that there’s some overlap between the SciShow channels, and the PBS Eons channel in that SciShow’s one main host, Hank Green, also seems to be hosting some PBS Eons shows. In addition, Blake de Pastino both hosts PBS Eons, and writes content for SciShow.
This probably doesn’t mean all that much to you if you’re not familiar with the shows, but it was a bit like finding that two flavours of ice cream that you generally enjoy separately, taste pretty good when combined. Or something like that.
If you enjoy good quality science shows, then definitely take a look at these shows.
