DNA science. Artificial intelligence. Smartphones and 3D printers. Science and technology have transformed the world we live in. But how did we get here? It wasn’t by accident. Well, sometimes it was. It was also the result of hard work, teamwork, and competition. And incredibly surprising moments. Hosted by bestselling author Steven Johnson (“How We Got To Now”), American Innovations uses immersive scenes to tell the stories of the scientists, engineers, and ordinary people behind the greatest discoveries of the past century. From Wondery, the network behind Business Wars, American History Tellers, and Dirty John.

Customer Reviews

Great road trip listen

We’ve been playing this during our cross country trip (that’s a LOT of time in the car!) It can be difficult for a family to agree on what to listen to but my kids AND my husband and I can agree on this one! (kids age range from 5-14). We especially enjoyed the anesthesia episodes.

Fantastic, entertaining, detailed, quality

Fantastic sound quality, entertaining writing, detailing information. And overall quality podcast! I’ve loved the episode subjects so far and I can’t wait to hear more!

I like this show enough to actually review it

I have really been enjoying this show. I don't even bother to review a podcast unless I really like it. I saw a review that didn't like the fake conversations, but personally I think they add immensely to the show, and without them it wouldn't be as well formed. I've only listened to the series on nuclear power, but I really look forward to listening to more episodes.
