* There is also a spin-off podcast, SciShow Tangents, described as a "lightly competitive knowledge showcase" which features several of the makers of SciShow sharing interesting science facts on a different topic each week. It includes a poem to introduce the topic, a Radio/WaitWaitDontTellMe style section choosing which of three "facts" is true, a "fact-off" where two players try to present a fact to the others which will "blow their minds", and a post-credits "But fact". Discussion often wanders off-topic, hence the show's title.

* DanBrowned: They have [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kT0HJkr1jj4 an episode detailing Chromosomal abnormalities of the sex chromosomes]], such as XYY syndrome and Kleinfelter's (XXY). The problem is that they present these conditions as additional biological sexes, when in reality they're more comparable to Down's syndrome than anything. Abnormalities of this chromosome pair actually have a very minor impact on the way the body develops, if ''at all''. The most drastic one is XO syndrome, wherein the baby has but a single unpaired X chromosome. This results in a perfectly ordinary female baby, save that she has no ovaries. Even the aforementioned XXY syndrome just results in a male with some slight "man boobs," almost indistinguishable from the ones normally found on obese XY males. All in all, science isn't likely to recognize a third sex until presented with a third gamete.

The show is divided up into different sections. "Infusion" talks about such popular topics as solar energy and climate change in great detail. "Dose" is a section of quick videos of obscure topics, such as Tardigrades and Foldit gamers. "News" is a weekly section devoted to quick news stories that have happened recently. "Breaking" is devoted to one breaking news story.

It's spawned three spinoff channels.

[=SciShow=] Kids, launched in March 2015 as part of Website/YouTube Kids, is hosted by Jessi Knudsen-Castañeda of Animal Wonders fame and features various kid-friendly topics with a particular focus on life science. [=SciShow=] Psych, launched in February 2017, is hosted by rotating hosts Hank Green and Brit Garner and explains aspects of psychology throughout history and the present.
