Engines of our Ingenuity

[home page]

The Engines of Our Ingenuity is a radio program that tells the story of how our culture is formed by human creativity. Written and hosted by John Lienhard, it is heard nationally on Public Radio and produced by KUHF-FM Houston. Among other features, this web site houses the transcripts for every episode heard since the show's inception in 1988.

I'm having fun CTRL+F-ing around the full episode titles with keywords page. Clicking the episode number gets you the transcript, supplementary media (photos, links, etc.), and a link to the Real Audio file of the episode. There are over 2,400 episodes, with topics ranging from Colonial America's amateur innovators to The Kronos Quartet to Mendel as the father of modern genetics. Sweet.
