H: Hello and welcome to the SciShow Talk Show, the day on SciShow where we talk to interesting people about interesting stuff in our new place, our new land. Welcome, thank you, this is Vanessa Hill from BrainCraft.
V: Hello, and thank you. The new land is very nice.
H: Do you like it?
V: I like it, I like the new digs.
H: Thanks. This is our actual office, previously we recorded at like, a place that we just rented and went into and then sometimes people would come in and they would be like, what are you doing? And now, we have an office.
V: Yeah, it's nice.
H: With all this happening behind us.
V: Yeah, yeah.
H: It may change over the course of more talk shows, we're still working on it. Thank you for being here.
V: Of course!
H: Tell me a little bit about what you do for the people at home.
V: For all the people, okay.
H: I'm kinda familiar.
V: So, I'm the creator of BrainCraft, which is a YouTube channel on neuroscience and psychology and human behavior. It's with PBS Digital Studios, and I create short videos about the brain and other areas of science that just interest me sometimes. I like to do stop motion animation, so my kind of original idea for the channel was I want to create stop motion videos about the brain, which is a bit random, it's a bit specific, but I just thought it could work, and I started doing animations with little bits of paper and kind of moving them around and everything, and I got better at doing them over time and the show has kind of developed over time as well. Where I'd probably do about one video a month that has those animations in it, and then I have some other bits of content that go (?~1:42) talking about other things.
H: That are a little easier to produce.
V: They're a little easier to produce, yeah, they make my life a little bit easier, yeah, so that's my YouTube channel.
H: Cool. And why did you start doing that?
V: So I worked in the classroom previously, which was really fun.
H: What's your background? Let's go all the way back.
V: Let's go all the way back. Okay, so I went to college, as you call it.
H: What do--what do you call it?
