Science! History! Murder houses! Religious unity! Join us for all this and more when we hit Chicago for a localized LIVE episode of the Stuff to Blow Your Mind Podcast at Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo.

We'll transport you back to the Chicago Columbian Exposition of 1893, when the neoclassical architecture of Daniel Burnham’s “White City” loomed on the shores of Lake Michigan, Nikola Tesla’s alternating current powered thousands of decorative incandescent lamps, and the original Ferris Wheel gave visitors from all around the world a view from the top. It's all going down April 22, 2017, 5:15 PM - 6:30 PM and you can find all the details right here.
