HowStuffWorks

As a child, Robert Lamb dreamed of becoming a mad scientist when he grew up. As this profession proved to be largely fictional, however, he swallowed his heartbreak and turned his attention to the written word instead. He earned his bachelor's degree in creative writing from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, which launched him on a career path through high school English classrooms, small-town newsrooms and finally into the offices of HowStuffWorks.

As a senior writer and podcaster for Stuff to Blow Your Mind, Robert now spends his days sifting through all the scientific wonders that make the world so mad and amazing. He currently lives in Atlanta with his lovely wife and their beautiful one-eyed cat. When he's not researching the apocalypse or the miracle we call a space toilet, he enjoys listening to electronic music, painting the odd miniature and writing fiction.
