The How To of "Wait but Why" w/ Tim Urban

We had the honor of interviewing Tim Urban on the Mythinformed podcast. Wait But Why is a site founded by Tim Urban and Andrew Finn and written and illustrated by Tim Urban. The site covers a range of subjects as a long-form blog. Content has been syndicated on The Huffington Post, Lifehacker, as well as being referenced on other sites. Typical posts involve long form explanations of various topics, including artificial intelligence, outer space, and procrastination using a combination of prose and rough illustrations.

In June 2015, Elon Musk asked Urban if he would be willing to write about his companies and their surrounding industries, leading to a four-part series of Wait But Why posts on Elon Musk and his companies. Urban interviewed Musk multiple times, and the two discussed the importance of sustainable transport, solar energy, and the future of space exploration. On April 20, 2017, Tim Urban posted the first deep insight into Elon Musk's transhumanist brain-machine interface company, Neuralink. Musk had asked Urban to write an explanatory article about a month and a half before.
