With our treasure trove of insightful talks by these extraordinary men and women, you can turn your daily commute into an educational oasis. Or enhance your workouts with mind-inspiring lectures on the subjects that most captivate your imagination.
Our story began in 2006 with a bold dream and a rented studio. Michael Bloom, a distance learning entrepreneur, and Dan Mollura, an investment banker-turned-physician, saw technology as the key to democratized learning. If media could syndicate news, entertainment, and sports, why not teaching? We wanted to channel the timeless power of lecture-based learning into cutting-edge media.
We wrote our mission statement with five guiding principles, including a spirit of generosity. Great teachers are generous with their time, discoveries, and expertise. They dedicate themselves to their students’ growth, and we wanted to give them a technological platform to reach lifelong learners like you, wherever you might be.
Now You Know Media brings you the best minds on the most in-demand subjects.
