The Beauty Brains, The History of Witchcraft, Hunting Warhead

Welcome back, we have more podcasts for you! Liz recommends a podcast on her second passion besides murder podcasts: beauty. The Beauty Brains podcast breaks down what's really in your cosmetics and whether you need them, Zane gets occulty with The History of Witchcraft (which is more about the history of trash humans) and Nick does a deep dive into the world of criminals on the Dark Web with Hunting Warhead. Then it's on to the reviews of last week!

Liz Recommends: The Beauty Brains

“We’re here to help you cut through the confusing, misleading and sometimes false information that the beauty companies bombard you with. Our goal is to explain cosmetic science to you in a way that’s entertaining and easy to understand. We believe the more information you have, the better you’ll be able to find products that you like at a price you can afford. So, you can listen to the advertising. Or advice from a friend. Or what your stylist tells you. But if you want to really understand cosmetic products in an unbiased, scientific way, Ask The Beauty Brains. You’ll get answers from a team of scientists who have no sales pitch and nothing for you to buy.”

Perry Romanowski is a writer, cosmetic chemist, Inventor, scientist, instructor, futurologist, and thought leader. He’s also the founder of Chemists Corner blog and training program. He also has the longest running streak done while joggling.

Valerie George is a cosmetic chemist, science communicator, educator, leader and avid proponent of transparency in the beauty industry. She works on the latest research in hair color and hair care as Vice President of Research & Development at a leading salon brand. 

The Beauty Brains was founded by Perry and Randy Schueller, two cosmetic scientists with decades of experience in formulating and testing beauty products. Randy and Perry recorded the first 165 episodes of the Beauty Brains. Randy retired from the show in 2018.

In addition to Perry and Valerie, other scientists will write for the website on occasion. Some of these individuals want to be able to express their honest opinions and share their knowledge without fear of losing their day jobs so they’ve adopted brainy character names like the Left Brain, the Right Brain, and our personal favorite, Sarah Bellum.

So far there are 200 episodes and counting.

For both: Whatever topic floats your boat.
