The second season kicks off with five episodes on the topics of Fireworks, Magic, Monsters, Dance, and Dogs. More episodes will release later. I have had the opportunity to watch some of the upcoming episodes and enjoyed then thoroughly. Jeff meets some amazing people along his journeys of discovery. For example he learns more about magic from Penn and Teller as well as neuroscientists Dr. Stephen Macknik and Dr. Susana Martinez-Conde who explain how the brain processes magic tricks and why they continue to impress us. In the episode on Fireworks, he travels to the a desert in California where old military bunkers hold thousands of fireworks used for large displays. He even talks with Intel’s Drone Queen Natalie Cheung to learn about aerial light displays using hundreds of drones programmed to fly and light up in synch.
