Modulus, hosted by Brian and Stephanie, is a podcast for engineers, scientists, researchers, and STEM enthusiasts who want an inside look at the work that moves humankind forward.
Finding Failures, Saving Lives
Take an inside look at Zipline, an ambitious drone delivery company, from the perspective of the person whose job is to find the company’s technological flaws — and fix them before lives are on the line.
Deciphering the Mind of the Octopus
Understanding octopus intelligence requires stepping outside the notion of intelligence as we know it.
Mystery of the Booming Sands
Caltech professor Melany Hunt set out to solve a centuries-long mystery: what causes the rare booming sand dune?
NASA engineer Bobak Ferdowsi — known internationally as “Mohawk Guy” — takes us inside the arc of his career, the make-or-break moments behind the Mars Curiosity Rover, and his rise to overnight celebrity.
Working Under Pressure
An advanced diving technique allows for months-long missions underwater, and with that comes both discoveries and dangers, as told by our two featured divers.
Two researchers are on a quest to find better battery solutions in the pursuit of sustainable energy storage.
A bit redundant since I already follow on YouTube, but I found the bits of added content valuable, and the overall flow and engagement of the cut very enjoyable to listen to.
Top Quality Tech/Engineering
I’ve been a fan of Bryan/Real Engineering for years and more recently Stephanie/Real Science. Very excited to see you both get into the podcast game. Keep up the great work and covering great highly relevant topics.
Would love to see you take on Small Modular Reactors and other nuclear technology here.
