Another site too?!?

Another website? What am I, switching out of electrical engineering and into IT?

Well…no.

This is the site for the podcast mentioned in the last post. We called the first episode, “Jumping Off” and the second episode is about “Feedback”. We hope you like it! Many more themes, discussions and guests are on the way in the coming months.

You can find it over at our new home, The Engineering Commons. Please consider subscribing so you can hear our shows as they are posted. Thanks for listening!

Another Engineering Podcast?!?

I’m not around here too much anymore. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, it’s just that I have so many other places to say it. And I may have added another one.

As some you may know, I’m the co-host of an electronics podcast called The Amp Hour. It’s a lot of fun and our listeners run the gamut of hobbyists to professionals. Me and Dave Jones talk about circuits and related topics weekly.

But something has happened lately. I keep trying to draw the conversation away from electronics during the show and into more general engineering topics. I enjoy talking about more general topics such as innovation and the design process. But that’s not what Amp Hour listeners want to hear, they want circuits. We’ve done a couple surveys and each time that comes through loud and clear.

So, I started a second podcast!

I’ve paired up with Jeff Shelton of Engineering Revision. He’s an experienced mechanical engineer who is back in school for his PhD at Purdue and has lots of great experiences to draw on during the show.

This is just the first episode, so we’re looking for two things:

  • Feedback on the content of the show!
  • Help naming it!

If we keep enjoy doing the show and you enjoy what we have to offer, we’ll find a more permanent home with a website and a feed. Please let us know what you think in the comments!

EDIT: I didn’t realize the widget wouldn’t allow a direct download. If you want the mp3 file all to yourself, you can download the .mp3 here directly.
