An excellent podcast for those who don't want bits that are too short or drone on for far too long. Neat subjects and a laid-back atmosphere. Can't wait for more!

Description

This podcast investigates the curious history of invention and innovation. Did Thomas Edison take credit for things he didn’t actually invent? What everyday items have surprising origins? And would man have ever got to the moon without… the bra? 


Each episode host Dallas Campbell dives into stories of flukey discoveries, erased individuals and merky marketing ploys with the help of experts, scientists and historians. 


Expect new episodes every Wednesday and Sunday.
