They're interested in everything so everything is interesting.
Each episode is a stroll from one cool science idea to another.
Philip Shane and Matt Stanley think out loud about things you wonder: how you'd feel in space, what the Milky Way really looks like, what's the likelihood you'll fall through your chair, the kinds of discoveries scientists can make only thanks to tea and cookies, whether we're overdue for a giant bronze brain, and what marks the weirdos from the geniuses.
Good-natured, smart, welcoming -- these are voices you want in your head!
What If This Show Is Great? It is!
Great concept, funny hosts. What if one thing were different? How would that effect everything else? This satisfies my craving for science fiction and humor.
Okay. I get it
I'm not into shows that chit-chat about random stuff, which is what I expected from a show called "What the If", but I have to admit: I get it. Not only is there great chemestry and humor but they have brought up some thought provoking but intelligent topics.
Good stuff guys!
