    I wanted to make an episode on a topic from the history of science for a long time, finally it happened. This is an interview with Etienne Benson, professor of the history of science and technology, on the history of how people of the western world have been seeing, studying and explaining their environment. We talk mostly about his book, Surroundings, but also briefly about his current field of study.

Great Science, Physics, Aviation, and Tech podcast

My favorite science podcast that goes deep. Very structured and the host does a great job to put things in perspective and summarize points in his own words.
I would love to have an episode about FPGAs.

@German speakers: #298 Interessanter Einblick in die Dynamik der beider am Ende bei der ehrlichen und offenen Diskussion.
