Greetings, SYSK Army. We're back in action this week with a little live webcast goodness. Tune in to the link below at 1 pm est for our slant on the latest news from around the world.

Ladies and gents, below you'll find a player for the the SYSK live Webcast airing today. We'll do two shows - 30 minutes each beginning at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. eastern time. So if you're reading this post and you don't see us, that means it's not 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. eastern time. We're working on recording and posting these shows, but not just yet so hang in there. Tune in and leave you comments right here and we'll read them live on the air.

OK folks, so we're giving this live webcast thing another go. For those of you who tuned in last week, you know that we were met with myriad technical issues and it didn't exactly go down like we wanted. But the show must go on, as they say and we're ready for take two. I should also mention that we have a killer video department here at HowStuffWorks.com and they weren't responsible for last week's foibles. Sometimes computers can just be stubborn and uncooperative. SO - tune in here tomorrow, that's Wednesday, at 10 am and 1 pm eastern time. That's 7 am and 10 am for you West coasters and who knows what time for the rest of the world. I'll have a new post up tomorrow morning with the video link ready to go. As always, thanks for hanging in there, SYSK Nation. Hopefully you can all appreciate this new endeavor as it evolves into something truly awesome and mind meltingly cool.

So it's going down, folks. We're launching a new weekly video webcast version of Stuff You Should Know - but way better! Tune in tomorrow at 10 am est and again at 1 pm est for some pure, live SYSK goodness - we'll talk about newsy stuff like swine flu, tackle a bite-sized version of the SYSK podcast, and rock a cool segment about some of the great oddballs of world history. We're also going to have some LIVE VIEWER MAIL. And you can watch it all right here by clicking on the video below. We want to hear from the SYSK Nation in real time. So near the latter portion of our 30 minutes, we'll read some viewer mails live as they come in. Submit your questions and comments about what we're talking about - or about anything that strikes your fancy in the comments section below this very post. Give your first name and where you're watching from too if you would.
