RS Components has released a new series called ‘The DesignSpark Podcast’ exploring some of the hottest issues in tech through a mixture of fun facts, exuberant stand-up, outlandish sketches and foot-tapping songs. The podcast provides unique educational information on each technology while also providing a very entertaining comedy experience.


This weekly podcast is co-hosted by tech expert Dr Lucy Rogers, a former judge on BBC’s Robot Wars, founder of the Guild of Makers and a DesignSpark blogger, as well as award-winning comedians Bec Hill and Harriet Braine.


The trio are reunited following the five-star-rated ‘History Makers’ podcast series last autumn, which touched a high of number four in the Apple iTunes Tech Chart and examined inventors through history who influenced everything from artificial intelligence to 3D manufacturing.


Working in collaboration with ‘Why Did The Chicken?’, a new episode of the podcast will be released each Monday for six weeks with the first episode available on 20 May 2019. Topics coming under the telescopic sights of Dr Lucy, Bec and Harriet will include AI, social media, big data, robotics and space exploration.


“Following on from the success of our first DesignSpark podcast series, these new episodes will feature a new show with a new format, exploring the world of modern technology with a difference,” said Leonie Clayson, DesignSpark community manager. “It offers a perfect entertaining blend of technology and comedy in an audio capsule that is easy to download to smartphones and other electronically based thingamajigs for consumption at home, at work, or anywhere in between.”
