Joe McCormick is a writer and a host of the science podcast Stuff to Blow Your Mind, on which he explores strange fascinations such as techno-religions, prehistoric sea monsters and the origins of consciousness. A native of East Tennessee, he now lives in Atlanta with his wife Rachael and a dangerous canid named Charles Darwin.
