At Underknown, our purpose is to tell great stories that educate and inspire – so that our audiences can live more informed lives and create a more understanding world.
We are obsessed with boiling down complex subjects in a fun, engaging way. Our goal is to change people’s perspectives by creating fun, educational content that makes them look to the sky instead of the ground.
Our culture is all about diversity, relentless curiosity, and the freedom to be real with one another. We constantly learn, pivot and explore together by asking questions that stretch our own perspectives and create a new way of looking at the world.
”Exploring is delightful to look forward to and back upon, but it is not comfortable at the time, unless it be of such an easy nature as not to deserve the name.”
— Samuel Butler
