If batteries are one of your areas of interest, there are several podcasts that will help you stay informed, and possibly even entertained.
3 Battery Podcasts to Follow
Some of the available podcasts about batteries include:
The Electrochemical Society Podcast – If you are seeking technical content, the Electrochemical Society has you covered. Topics range widely and include nanomaterials, batteries in medical applications, and interviews with scientists working in these areas, to name a few.
Fw:Thinking – This podcast is certainly not limited to just batteries. In fact, it covers a broad range of categories that fit into the tagline, “Technology. Humanity. The Future.” For example, in the episode titled Batteries are Included, commentators challenge the perception that battery technology is lagging behind other technological developments. The discussion also includes a good layman’s explanation of the way batteries work and the problems scientists face when striving to create batteries that provide more power and last longer. Other topics that this podcast covers include the Internet of Things, fuel cells, and advanced materials.
The Loh Down on Science – Another science-based blog that has several episodes related to batteries is The Loh Down on Science, hosted by Sandra Tsing Loh. Short, informative podcast episodes cover topics like the latest technological developments in wearables, new ways to generate battery power using humid air, and the use of piezoelectrics in the military. The podcast also has a fun daily quiz that allows you to test your knowledge.
Of course, there are countless other science podcasts that occasionally touch on battery technology. You can easily find these by searching a podcast directory for keywords like battery, wearables, flexible battery, or any other specific term that piques your interest.
