The “It’s Okay to be Smart” Thanksgiving Special



Joe Hanson (PeekYou profile here) may not be one of the Internet’s most prominent scientists, but he may very well be on his way as the host and writer of PBS Digital Studios’ popular YouTube series and blog, It’s Okay to be Smart.

Keeping things seasonal as well as “smart,” the video embedded above is Joe’s Thanksgiving special; where he’s joined for turkey and fixings — thanks to a can of cranberry sauce containing an “entirely plausible trans-dimensional wormhole” — by Einstein, Galileo, Darwin, Marie Curie, Nikola Tesla, and Newton. PeekYou may not yet be the Internet’s greatest resource for investigating these mostly immeasurably important humans, but it’s a heck of a place to go to learn a lot more about Joe.
