The Engineer's first podcast: electric motor racing and HS2

Welcome to the first in a series of monthly podcasts in which we’ll be talking you through the latest technology news, discussing the most important issues in engineering and finding out more about some of the fascinating stories The Engineer has been reporting on. We’ll also be joined by some special guests and interviewing the people behind the UK’s most impressive engineering projects.

You can listen to the podcast through the player below or download it to you computer by right-clicking here.

This month, editor Jon Excell and the rest of the team discuss electric motor racing, a new Chernobyl containment facility and the UK government’s latest plans for high speed rail.

We’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions of any topics you’d like to hear us discuss in the next podcast.

  • Hi,
    I like the idea of making podcasts, but, can you give the listener the option of saving/ downloading them so that the listener can listen to them on a mobile device etc???

  • Podcast is a great idea. Loved your discuss on Graphene.
    Could you please recommend how one can get involved in this research programme?

  • This is interesting and I could use it in my EFL language class (listening activity). I like it because the the output is quite authentic, i.e. not scripted.

    Nonetheless, I wonder if you could produce a tapescript for this PODcast, obviously after the event?
