Last month we shared news that the founders of Mental Floss magazine, Will Pearson and Mangesh Hattikudur were departing the company. They have since left and have already landed elsewhere. The duo is joining podcasting giant HowStuffWorks where they will launch their own podcast later on this summer. Howstuffworks which is ranked among the top five podcast publishers based on global downloads, enjoys about 30 million monthly downloads thanks to popular podcasts like 'Stuff You Should Know' and 'Stuff You Missed in History Class'
With thousands of other podcasts available for listeners to download or stream, Pearson and Hattikudur decided to work with HowStuffWorks based on their proven track record to create shows and “podcast families,” according to Pearson, that really connect with audiences.
“It felt right to try something new with a parent company and partner who is already doing incredible work in the space,” said Pearson. “HowStuffWorks has really learned how to successfully grow a podcast and a community around it.”
