Engineering Podcasts – Engines of our Ingenuity

A podcast which started in 1988 on KUHF-FM radio Houston, Engines of our Ingenuity (hosted by Dr. John Lienhard) is a favourite among teachers.

The show looks at the history, art, technology, and the epic failures and successes that our human curiosity has led us to (which – of course – makes this show itself epic!)

The story of technological progress is one of drama and intrigue, sudden insight and plain hard work. Let’s explore technology’s spectacular failures and many magnificent success stories.

The Engines of Our Ingenuity is a radio program that tells the story of how our culture is formed by human creativity. Written and hosted by John Lienhard and other contributors, it is heard nationally on Public Radio and produced by Houston Public Media.

Visit the Engines of Our Ingenuity website for transcripts for every episode heard since the show’s inception in 1988.
