Meet the Author! Mindy Thomas

Presented in partnership with the National Aquarium.

Did you know the hippopotamus is the closest living relative to the dolphin?  How about the fact that electric eels can emit shock waves of up to 600 volts? That’s 50 times more voltage than a car battery!  Bestselling children's author and award-winning podcast host Mindy Thomas will join us to wow you with these and tons of other fascinating and funny facts about our animal kingdom. 

Mindy Thomas is the co-author with Guy Raz of the Wow in the World series. They are also the co-hosts of the wildly popular children’s podcast of the same name that focuses on science, technology, and innovation.  She also hosts SiriusXM's The Absolutely Mindy Show
