Academy Award winner Adam McKay’s Hyperobject Industries and Three Uncanny Four Productions, in partnership with Sony Entertainment, has announced the launch of Things You Don’t Need to Know.
The new podcast, hosted by YouTube creator Ari Cagan, will examine some of the most interesting, unconventional, and sometimes even useless information with comedic and entertaining twists. Each episode will feature conversations with experts and even some of Cagan’s friends and family members. The podcast will give listeners a chance to learn something new about arbitrary subjects.
The first episode of the 30-episode series is titled “Defuse a Bomb” and discusses bomb disposal and includes an interview with Cagan and retired Marine Corpse E.O.D. Officer Tom Gersbeck, author of Practical Military Ordnance Identification.
The second episode is titled “Sell Your Soul” and gives listeners a look inside the art of selling your soul mystically, practically, and metaphorically.
Things You Don’t Need to Know is available on all major podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher. The first two episodes are available here.
