Terrific "driveway" moments

Engines has aired on KUHF in Houston for many years and I've always wanted a way to retrieve the most interesting episodes to play for my literature students at a local college. The best "engines" blend science, engineering, art, music, literature, and common sense into quirky tales that illuminate the best of our human interaction with the world in history and today.

Highly recommended

Dr. Lienhard's program is a compelling and interesting look into the history of technology and its impact on our lives. I'm aware of no other program like it, and it's not to be missed!

The Best Few Minutes of My Day

I have been listening to "Engines" for several years, and I do everything I can to hear it every day. Dr.Lienhard's ability to clearly show us how science, invention, art, literature, history, and our present all intermingle to form the world we are in today, as well as our future, always fascinates me. Dr. Lienhard has the same vision as many of the figures he so sincerely admires. Listen to just one of these episodes, and you will be not only hooked, but educated. Bravo, Dr. Lienhard! Bravo!
