The Curioso is a biweekly podcast cohosted by Christopher Scarborough and Joseph Taylor. In this podcast we talk about the things that made us curious as children, the things that make us curious as adults, and try to make sense of these mysteries. We like to discuss bizarre occurrences and forgotten history.

Meet our hosts.
