Zengineering: A Philosophy of Science, Technology, Art & Engineering
About This Show
Zengineering Podcast is for everyone who loves Science & Technology and also cares deeply about the beauty of Life's Big Questions. We (Adam & Brian) are obsessed with the spot where modern Science, Technology & Engineering meet Philosophy, Art & Spirituality. As proud wearers of lifetime nerd badges, we have found this to be the place where the most interesting questions are both formulated and discussed.
Through Zengineering Podcast we discuss lots of tech, dive deeply into science and engineering, and go on lots of random tangents in a pursuit of how to build mental models of the world that inform and guide our actions in positive ways. We do our best to share this exploration.
Episodes are released every two weeks, with the occasional bonus in between.

058 - on Climate Change - Part 2 - Carbon, Cooking, and Chemistry
Hey Zengineers! This is our second episode in a series on Climate Change. No one knows how many episodes this series may ultimately contain, but probably a lot! We've got loads to share, and we've got some killer guests coming up. We also find this topic important, timely, all encompassing, and endlessly interesting. Lots of what we talk about regularly is affected by and affects Climate Change. Wow! So much fun to be had, and so much important information to share! In this episode, we get into a little of the nitty gritty science. What is happening chemically that is causing global climate change, global warming, droughts, floods, super storms, wildfires, pollution, extinctions and more? How are all these things possibly even connected? We've all heard about the Carbon Cycle of life and that there's too much CO2 in our atmosphere, but what does that mean? What is it doing, and how's it doing it? Also, wtf is Carbon and why is it so important? We've talked a lot in previous episodes about science, experiments, and experts, and this episode brings a lot of those conversations into practice. How are we supposed to think about the mindbogglingly large science experiment that is our home planet and solar system? There are big forces at play in the global struggle to address the changing chemistry of our world and understanding the science is an extremely important first step that a lot of us are missing. We know we were!! Enjoy the details and hit us up with any questions, answers, or complaints. We care a lot about this topic and want to know how this all makes you feel and what thoughts it's provoking!
