What's the Difference?

The world is full of things that are similar, yet not quite the same. There must be some reason, some quirky backstory, some fascinating corner of the world where these little differences are a big deal. That’s what this show is all about. In each episode of What’s the Difference?, we bring in a guest expert to help us understand the subtle differences between commonly confused things. It’s about learning, having fun, and winning that years-long debate with your college roommate.
