The Crash Course Complete Series DVD box sets have arrived! They’re now shipping. And they are gorgeous! There are currently two box sets available, World History and Biology. Each set includes 8 DVDs in five DVD cases, mini posters and inserts, outtakes and other bonus footage, etc. They’re $60 each, or you can get both for $100 ($20 off!), just add both to your cart and the discount is automatically applied.
Maybe I can talk Crash Course into letting me host a future Music History series… by which I mean, let me play you Dark Side of the Moon while we all listen appreciatively in silence. =)

Transcribers wanted!

Over at the Nerdfighteria Wiki, we’re trying to get more of John & Hank’s channels transcribed. While vlogbrothers is in decent shape, we need more volunteers to help us with channels like crashcourse, the lizzie bennet diaries, sexplanations, etc. Any help is appreciated, from transcribing a new video to cleaning up the formatting of existing transcripts.

Thanks!

Check it out! The second series of Hank’s science videos on Crash Course has just begun! Huzzah and huzzah!

The History of Life on Earth - Crash Course Ecology #1 

With a solid understanding of biology on the small scale under our belts, it’s time for the long view - for the next twelve weeks, we’ll be learning how the living things that we’ve studied interact with and influence each other and their environments. Life is powerful, and in order to understand how living systems work, you first have to understand how they originated, developed and diversified over the past 4.5 billion years of Earth’s history. Hang on to your hats as Hank tells us the epic drama that is the history of life on Earth.

Your Skeleton: It’s ALIVE! - CrashCourse Biology #30

Hank introduces us to the framework of our bodies, our skeleton, which apart from being the support and protection for all our fleshy parts, is involved in many other vital processes that help our bodies to function properly. 

Everything about this is rad and wonderful.
