The Engines of Our Ingenuity

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.
