Michael Stevens created the first Vsauce channel in 2010. Since then, he’s introduced millions of people to mind-bending concepts in intuitive and accessible ways. He’s covered everything from What Is The Scariest Thing? and Is The 5 Second Rule True? to the size of infinity and the Zipf Mystery. Michael is also the creator of the Emmy-nominated psychology show Mind Field and is an honorary member of Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society. He’s appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and has collaborated with gurus like Adam Savage and David Attenborough.
Kevin Lieber examines mind-blowing technology, the origins of the things around us, and the amazing in the everyday on Vsauce2. He explores recreational mathematics on his homemade whiteboard table like The Dot Game That Breaks Your Brain and analyzes paradoxes including explaining once and for all What Is A Paradox?. His own curiosity has led him to some once-in-a-lifetime experiences like shooting a video with National Geographic on the slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano, giving a lecture on the world's largest cruise ship beneath a solar eclipse in the middle of the ocean, and working with cosmology legend Neil Degrasse Tyson.
Vsauce3 covers the real-world science of fictional worlds: books, video games, and movies. In each episode of his Emmy-award-winning series, Could You Survive The Movies, Jake explores whether or not our favorite characters would make it through the obstacles of classic movies like Back To The Future and Jumanji. Jake has been a featured speaker at the Tribeca Film Festival, VidCon, and Comic Con among others, but he's most comfortable eating his favorite food, tacos, with his dog, Fajita.
