The Engines of Our Ingenuity Episodes: 100-149
Engines of Our Ingenuity

Episodes 100 to 149


Note: I have gone back and either rewritten many of the the episodes in this set (originally taped in 1987 and 1988) as new episodes, or I have noted later relevant episodes. The original tape reels had begun flaking and I feared that the audio versions of this material might otherwise have been lost. I have added links to updated material at the end of each script.
