The Engines of Our Ingenuity

in Daily Programme, Radio Riel Main

by Elrik Merlin on Wednesday, 24 May, 2017

Starting this week, we are pleased to bring you a new feature on Radio Riel’s Main Stream, in the form of a 4-minute daily programme on the development of art, technology, and ideas: The Engines of Our Ingenuity.

Written and hosted by John Lienhard and KUHF-FM, Houston, The Engines of Our Ingenuity tells the story of how our culture is formed by human creativity. The programme uses the record of history to reveal the way art, technology, and ideas have shaped us. Episode topics range from cable cars to Civil War submarines, from the connection between Romantic poets and Victorian science to the invention of the bar code.

As we have a widespread international audience in many different timezones, we’ll initially be broadcasting the programme just after the top of the hour, every four hours from midnight Pacific Time (midnight, 4am, 8am, noon, 4pm and 8pm), so everyone will have an opportunity to hear it. Then we’ll look at the listening figures and see which slots are most popular.

If you miss an episode, you can catch them on the Engines web site.

The Engines of Our Ingenuity is produced by Mark DiClaudio and the theme music for the Radio series was created by Andrew Lienhard. Our thanks to the University of Houston for making this programming available.
