A mystery is only as good as its solution…at least, that’s what host Kaleigh Rogers believes. Science Solved It is a new weekly show from Motherboard that introduces listeners to the world’s greatest mysteries that were solved by science, with insight from the actual researchers who cracked the case. We cover everything from strange, underwater noises to cartoons that give people seizures, all with a satisfying scientific solution at the end.

Have you ever tried a digital detox? Or spending less time on Facebook, Twitter, or Reddit? Kenneth Goldsmith definitely hasn't. He's a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, where he teaches a class called "Wasting Time on the Internet." What started as an exploration of how we spend time online quickly became something of an art project—students shared their passwords, deleted files at random off their classmates' computers, and started impromptu dance parties. Goldsmith tells us why it's OK to spend all day looking at your phone or aimlessly browsing through Reddit. It's just human nature.
