Wonders of the Day with Charlie

Charlie Engelman is a writer, producer, and director of two National Geographic television series, Nature Boom Time! and Weird But True. His career as a science communicator began while he was still an undergraduate in ecology at the University of Michigan when his proposal, Nature Boom Time, was chosen from over 700 worldwide entries in Nat Geo’s “Expedition Granted” contest to identify the next-generation explorer. Since then, his writing and producing work has earned accolades and admiration throughout the industry including three Emmy Award Nominations for “Best Writing in a Children’s Series,” “Best Children’s Short Form Content,” and “Best Educational Program.” To-date he has been credited as the head writer on 45 children’s educational television episodes, and has produced and hosted over 200 hours of online science tutorials for kids.

Charlie’s work can be seen on the "World by Charlie" YouTube channel or on Fox and National Geographic Channels worldwide...
