The invention of the GPS has changed the world like few inventions have in the past 50 years. The billions of dollars it has injected into the global economy aside, this technology has revolutionized everything from how we drive, to the tracking of continental shifts. We have been lucky enough to get to meet with one of the inventors of GPS, Hugo F…
 
The conclave has gathered and there is white smoke. Impossible Coin names 2019's dumbest, evilest and most disappointing. Don't worry, there will be a magic show. (Not the juicy kind.) These are video games.

The bloodletting begins and the knives are out. Friends, it is time that we endanger our real and vibrant friendships over something so trivial as who is the best Fire Emblem person.
 
Nothing will change what you think you will be doing as an engineer like an internship or your first job. James and Luke discuss how their internship experiences prepared them for their first jobs and helped them reach the harsh reality of what engineering actually is. They also jump into how their first jobs continued to teach them that everything…

I think you have to go back to 2017 to find an episode of this show this bad. You hate to see it. Anyway, mistakes were made, Ls were held and somehow the person who got it together and rose above criticism was Geoff Keighley?
 
The futuristic technology in the Star Wars universe is unrivaled in creativity and tech far beyond human comprehension. That being said, it certainly isn't all good! We took a look at some of the biggest fails in the Star Wars movies, from being able, to bring down an ATAT with a simple cable to light saber functionality, all the way to how the Dea…
 
This is really the one that broke Tegan. I don't know whether it is every resident of Aldovia being a certified idiot or the swapping of the main character's father for a weird stranger who is definitely walking here but this sequel is watchalong that is much better/worse than the first. Our special holiday #content continues.…

Brian here. I haven't listened to this episode yet and I wasn't there. Pretty sure that means I now have the all-time worst attendance record, dethroning Tegan. I like to assume this episode title is very specifically targeted to me and my endless pillows. Don't judge me. VIDEO GAMES.
 
Isaac Newton might be the most brilliant person ever. There, we said it. Gravity, laws of motion, rainbows, astronomy... the man did it all!!We walk through the life of Isaac Newton to try and understand how he came up with so much of the foundation of modern science, learn if the apple falling on his head story is true, and throw in a few other fu…

Join us to learn about how Corning got started, some of the majo…
 
Rocky and Tegan stay tragically on task and mostly talk about video games as Brian's life spirals out of control because he can't get his sleep under control.

Take a listen and let us know what you t…
 
Tegan is back in prison. (Again.) We got got for something dumb. COMING FOR YOU SAISO. Two bad men who used to be friends settled their bad man fight. (It's the Randy Pitchford update.)

Have you ever wondered why we still have so many freaking lighthouses? Yeah, so did James. It turns out a lot of them are mostly just for show, but there are still a lot of them still in use.We take a look at the history of the lighthouse, how we went from a giant, thick lens, to the modern day way better deal, and even tell some of the greatest li…
 
This is a new episode of Impossible Coin. It is a podcast about video games. You can tell from this description that Brian is definitely in this episode and has full awareness of what was discussed. Or if he wasn't he has listened to the episode and knows what it is about. Featuring 100% less public domain music.…
 
Telescopes have been around for hundreds of years, allowing us to explore space from the comfort of our local observatory. But how did the first one come about?

Look, this episode is a full day late because Brian was working until 1AM on Wednesday. Also, he called an audible on the title of this episode because there was not an abundance of visuals that communicated "That's Just Paperwork" in a funny way. Please listen to this podcast about video games.
 
You can't find a much more important invention in the past 100 years than the airplane, and no one gets more love for pushing it forward than the Wright Brothers!Not only do we walk you through how the Wright Brothers invented the airplane (depending on your definition), but their childhood, what their far less interesting siblings did, and what li…
 
It's time for you to understand that airplanes don't run on magic, but by a little formula that can be used to calculate lift! This value is typically pretty close to the weight of the object, which makes sense, but the factors that go into the equation may not be as simple.Join us for a quick sit down on how lift is calculated, as well as an examp…
 
Rocky and Brian hold the fort while Tegan is out of office. KFC is a cynical, capitalist enterprise and their dating game is stupid (or that is what Brian would have you believe).

We thought we would try something new out and see how discussing actual engineering principles would go over with our listeners.Stress and strain are two of the most important values in Mechanical Engineering, if not all engineering. The basics of these calculations is pretty simple if you start small. We walk through what stress and strain are, ho…
 
Live from Doritos, Arizona comes this window into the emotional collapse of one of your hosts! Just kidding, Brian played multiple video games this week so he is fine! Slay the Spire is good. Gears 5 is buggy. Anna Kendrick agendas are alleged. Terry Bogard wants to be the best.
 
We all know the simple photovoltaic process that solar panels use to turn the suns light into electricity (yes, that's a joke), but what about the actual manufacturing process!??In this episode, we take a look at the entire process of how solar panels are made, starting from mining, to the REALLY hot furnaces, all the way to the final coatings to i…
 
CW: Sexual Assault, Suicide Sorry guys. It can't all be fun and games. (Even though our primary focus is just that.)

There is other, more fun, stuff in here too. And Steam. Always Ste…
 
The military is on the cutting edge of futuristic technology of all sorts.

Big Sach stops by and we speculate about Todd MacFarlane's Legend Of Zelda. Octopus gets used as a verb. America is going wild for chicken sandwiches and there is a preview of All Out and Royal Quest. All this and Tegan brings you your legally mandated amount of Nintendo stanning.
 
Carbon fiber (or carbon fibre if you're from the other side of the pond) doesn't just look cool, it is one of the most important inventions of recent time. Stronger than steel, yet lighter, the number of applications for carbon fiber are endless. From sports equipment, to sports cars, space ships to wind turbines, carbon fiber is revolutionizing de…

After doing so many episodes about great inventors throughout time, we decided to figure out which country has produced the most great inventors of all time. Though there were many great choices, and a few not so great ones, in the end we were able to decide who outranks them all. Take a listen to find out where your country ranks, let us know if w…
 
Brian is overwhelmed by Thwomps. Twitter, wrestling and Zelda make for a spicy and spirited debate. Rocky is playing that game with strategy and thirst. (Fire Emblem: Three Thirsts) Joycons are bad. Amit Raizada is bad. The Joker is good but Sigma is bad. No, not that Sigma. THESE ARE VIDEO GAMES.
