Teacher or professor: SciShow
Subject: Science
Content of the Lesson: Traceurs, or parkour athletes, seem superhuman in their ability to scale up walls and drop down from rooftops without injury. But it turns out that there’s a fair amount of biomechanics at play behind these powers. Hosted by: Hank Green SciShow has a spinoff podcast! It's called SciShow Tangents.
