This cannot end

I have been listening to this for 3 years and I cannot get enough. I listen to it in the car with my kids, although they are very young they are hearing about the wonders of engineeringand how inventive minds work

My First Exposure to Science

I remember listening to this show everyday on my way to elementary school. Thank you, John Lienhart for the great memories.

Each episode is packed with knowledge, like an espresso bean.

Great starting point for exploring new subjects.
