About Decipher Media

Decipher Media is a listener-supported producer of fun and informative indie podcasts about science, history, and general geekery.

We are Christopher Peterson and Lee Colbert, and with the help of a bunch of our friends (some of whom you may recognize!) we use popular media to connect ideas and learn something surprising with you every week.
