The Co-Founders of Mental Floss Are Leaving to Develop Podcasts at HowStuffWorks

Will Pearson and Mangesh Hattikudur are moving on

Will Pearson and Mangesh Hattikudur started Mental Floss as a campus magazine at Duke University in 2001, hoping to create something entertaining and educational. The rest, as they say, is history. Although the print publication recently closed, the site now boasts 15 million to 20 million unique visitors each month, with an additional 30 million monthly video views.
