These are some of my favorite podcasts I have come across over the last few years. There are roughly three dozen more that I attempt to keep track of. Omega Tau, Robohub, and Flash Forward are two of my favourites on this list at the moment.

  1. Omega Tau - (opens new window) - This is an absolutely amazing podcast, long, in-depth science and engineering. The host asks in depth questions that sometimes even stump the experts in the field.

"How do scientists uncover phenomena and explain their connections? How do engineers design machines, methods and infrastructure? At omega tau, experts give detailed answers. Over the last ten years, we have produced 300 episodes in which we dug deeper, until we ran out of questions. "
