Never in the history of the world has so much knowledge been accessible by so many people.  Recognized as a worldwide leader in lifelong learning, The Great Courses represents an incredible and rapidly growing selection of video and audio courses led by the world’s top professors and experts in fields such as philosophy, history, literature, science, the arts, and better living.

Now, The Great Courses also offers a streaming service called The Great Courses Plus.   This commercial-free, subscription-based, video-on-demand service provides thousands of in-depth videos taught by the world’s greatest professors, covering the most fascinating subjects out there.

There are so many great subjects it’s hard to choose.  You can’t go wrong with the great selection of science lectures.  From astronomy to zoology and everything in between, there’s something you’re sure to find interesting.

Personally, I’ve watched then entire lecture series for “How the Earth Works” and “Cosmology: The History and Nature of Our Universe“.  I’ve also listened to Dr. Stephen Novella’s, “Medical Myths, Lies, and Half-Truths: What We Think We Know May Be Hurting Us“, which should be recommended course material for any budding skeptic.

But one of my favorites has got to be Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Inexplicable Universe:  Unsolved Mysteries.”  Using visually stunning, 3-D environments, Dr. Tyson makes the most intimidating science accessible to everyone.  Learn about the Pioneer Anomaly, neutrinos, the origin of life, and how the universe might end…    It’s a collection of 6 fascinating lectures – and you can probably get through the whole series during your free trial period.

Satisfy your curiosity and try it out.  Right now, you can even take advantage of a free month.
