Big Bang Creator is basically Sheldon

Bill Prady, co-creator of "The Big Bang Theory," discusses how he came up with the idea to make a show about socially challenged scientists. What many may not know is that Prady himself is on the autism spectrum. Mayim explains "neuro-a typical' and sensory overload, and Bill opens up about his quirks and his challenges and shares intimately about his journey from awkward child and teen to well-adjusted, if eccentric, adult.

Theme Song Written, Produced, and Performed by Ed Robertson. Mixed by Kenny Luong.
