New Hosts Calli Gade and Nate Bonham (Former Hosts, YouTube’s King of Random)
Bring You All Things You Need to Know About The World
Every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday
New York, New York – April 6, 2022 – What makes you curious? Are you interested in learning about why animals keep evolving into crabs or perhaps would like to know the sexual implications of the pandemic? In less than 15 minutes, CURIOSITY DAILY can give you all the interesting tidbits about the most covered or obscure topics of our day, while making you smarter in just a few minutes.
Debuting April 6, new hosts, Calli Gade and Nate Bonham (former hosts of the popular YouTube channel’s The King of Random) bring their entertaining interpretations to today’s most interesting science, space and technology news. Every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, listeners will gain insights about their mind and body, outer space and the depths of the sea, and how history shaped the world into what it is today.
“Discovery’s audiences are inherently curious. They don’t just want to hear about the news, they want to experience it for themselves. As an extension of our brand, CURIOSITY DAILY will dive further into the whys and the wows of the world around us,” states Scott Lewers, Executive Vice President of Multiplatform Programming, Factual & Head of Content, Science.
What makes this chocked-full-of-fascinating-facts podcast come to life is Calli and Nate’s long-standing relationship of nine years. On “The King of Random” they blew stuff up, mixed stuff up and learned something new everyday–just like the CURIOSITY DAILY podcast. From learning how genetically engineered pig hearts could save human lives to mysterious volcanic explosions that have sent shockwaves around the world, listeners will leave a bit smarter and have a great tidbit for their next social gathering.
