Michael Stevens' speeches engage the audience with odd queries and insight that allots for an informative speech. His YouTube channel Vsauce was founded on July 30, 2007. During the initial launch of his channel, Stevens would feature topics on video games and other related content. Afterwards he introduced topics on science and education. He often engages his audience similar to that of Stevens' speeches, which is with odd thought-provoking queries.
Stevens' YouTube channel later afforded him the opportunity to collaborate with individuals such as Henry Reich of MinutePhysics and Bill Nye. His video on Vsauce have been featured on the sites such as Huffington Post and Gizmodo. Stevens received a degree in Neuropsychology and English literature from the University of Chicago.
