The Engineering Entrepreneur Podcast by Scott Tarcy
Another mechanical engineering podcast we found is The Engineering Entrepreneur Podcast by Scott Tarcy. Here’s what Scott says about the show:
“Hi this is Scott Tarcy and welcome to the Engineering Entrepreneur Podcast
I’m a mechanical engineer and the president of CADdesignhelp.com. My company does CAD work and prototyping. I love designing and inventing products and creating businesses around that activity.
There are many podcasts out there about entrepreneurship and a few about inventing, but I have yet to find a podcast specifically about the engineering and technical side of entrepreneurship
Since I couldn’t find the exact podcast that interests me as a design engineer and entrepreneur, I decided to go out and create it myself.
My strategy with this podcast is to interview engineers, designers and inventors who have created businesses around their inventions and products
I specifically want to focus on the engineering and design side of their products and inventions.”
Like the ones on the list, The Engineering Entrepreneur’s audience also speaks highly of the show:
A wealth of knowledge for inventors and other entrepreneurs
This podcast is a gold mine, with tips, tricks and information about 3D printing, Intellectual Property, selling on sites like Etsy, Ebay and Amazon.com, and much more.
I particularly like when Scott Tarcy (the host) reviews previous or current projects on which he is working. His 2019 Top 5 Projects show (episode 76) is a perfect example. If you have a 3D printer or plan to have something made on one, I would especially recommend this podcast.
Great place to start
Really easily digestible info and straight to the point. You’ll have a handful of actionable tips from each episode!
STEMming in Stilettos with Dr. Toshia
Also one of the best engineering podcasts out there is STEMming in Stilettos with Dr. Toshia. It is an entertaining and revealing podcast, highlighting some of the most badass minority women in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) today. You are going to laugh, cry, shout, be inspired, and gain new knowledge from these amazing women. Hosted by award-winning STEM advocate, educator, strategist, mechanical engineer, and motivational speaker, Dr. Natoshia Anderson (Dr. Toshia), join them for an engaging, invigorating, motivational, and inspirational journey.
Many are loving this show! Here’s a few:
We See You
Dr. Natoshia, this is an example of “The Work”. The women’s stories captured demystifies “The Process” and normalizes “The Struggle”. As a women in STEM I thank you for sharing the stories, struggles and processes that will inspire the current and next generation! You’re doing an excellent job. I can’t wait until the next episode!
Love Love Love!
I LOVE how this podcast is so progressive and showcasing the amazing women of STEM! I hope this podcast helps encourage more young queens to enter the STEM field ❤️
