About us

Welcome to Knowledge Stew! The site for those who love trivia, fun facts, and most of all, learning. We cover a wide range of topics, such as history, science, nature, travel, and food, as well as geography and space, just to name a few. There's always something new to discover to feed your brain in this Knowledge Stew. Enjoy! 


Thanks for stopping by! My name is Daniel Ganninger, editor of Knowledge Stew. I have always had a love of interesting stories and little known facts about things in the world. I enjoy taking a subject, a question, or something that I find interesting, and delving deeper in the facts. That's not to say there isn't a good bit of quick trivia items here too. 

I do my best to carefully research each article from reputable reliable sources to give the best information possible at the time. You'll see these posted at the end of each article. I strive to bring you quality content that is not only educational, but fun and interesting.     

Knowledge Stew started in 2015, as a lonely little site on Blogger, and after a few iterations, it finally was time to get its own domain. Since that time, it has grown in leaps and bounds. Four Knowledge Stew Books have been published with many of the articles from the website, as well as an odd news book from a series on the website (unfortunately since discontinued). A whole new batch of Knowledge Stew books are coming soon.

We have over 20,000 visitors per month to Knowledge Stew, and almost 30,000 visitors per month to our ad-free Knowledge Stew sister site and random fact site Fact World, both subscription sites on Medium. You can see how you can join those sites below. You can also subscribe to our newsletter, The Knowledge Stew Roundup, a collection of the stories that have recently been posted along with other facts we found interesting in the meantime.  

We hope you will continue to come back and check what new offerings we have to make your day a little smarter. Thanks for stopping by and having a little Knowledge Stew.
