S1 E1: Wireless Communication: “It’s addictive, dangerous and I don’t trust it”

August 30, 2018


Dr Lucy Rogers is joined by comedians Bec Hill and Harriet Braine for the History Makers podcast, where they explore modern technology and the people throughout history who have made it all possible.

In episode one, the trio discusses whether wireless communication is our salvation or damnation. Dr Lucy explains how Wi-Fi works, “robot” Harriet uses her databanks to bring some makers to life and Bec tells us why we should have never moved on from plastic cups and a piece of string.

So set your ears to receive and your mind to blown for History Makers!

Featured Makers: Guglielmo Marconi, Heinrich Hertz, Hedy Lamarr
