Our longest running show is ASK AN ENGINEER, it started when Ladyada plugged in a free web camera while she did the kitting and Phil did the shipping in their living room. Viewers could ask engineering questions and the show was born– they’ve since done ASK AN ENGINEER for the last 6 years. It’s longest running live electronics show in the world (that we know of). There are guests, engineers, new products, live Q&A and more, broadcast each Wednesday at 8pm ET on YouTube Live and Ustream. Behind the scenes looks are broadcast on Periscope.
