New Engineering Podcast with Chris Gammell and Jeff Shelton

Chris Gammell has teamed up with Jeff Shelton to create a new engineering podcast. The as-yet-untitled new show will discuss more general engineering topics, drawing on Chris’ EE background and Jeff’s ME background. Chris Writes:

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.

Head on over to Chris’ site (or Jeff’s site) to check out the first episode. They’re also looking for name suggestions for this new endeavor, so if you have an idea for a name, help them out!

I think a general engineering podcast is a great idea, and I wish them the best of luck!
