Making Tesla Proud

It’s creepy! It’s crawly! It occasionally has scales! It’s Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry! This week we're celebrating one of the coolest and one might say, creepiest scientists, electrical engineers, and visionaries the world has ever seen - Nikola Tesla. My guest this week is a physicist, she can run a nuclear reactor, she can teach how to solder, and most importantly for today’s broadcast, she is one of the founders of oneTesla - Heidi Baumgartner.  Heidi is here to explain exactly how you can build your very own singing Tesla coil, how she became involved with oneTesla, and what its like to vacation at Chernobyl. Also this week, we check out why 8-bit MCUs shouldn’t be thrown out like last year’s Halloween candy.
