RS Components (RS), a global multi-channel provider of industrial and electronic products and solutions, has released a new series of its popular ‘DesignSpark Podcast’ which explores some of the hottest topics in technology through a mix of fun facts, exuberant stand-up, outlandish sketches and foot-tapping songs. The podcast offers educational information on each technology topic, with an entertaining comedy angle.

The new weekly podcast is co-hosted by technology expert Professor Lucy Rogers PhD – former judge on BBC’s Robot Wars and a DesignSpark blogger – alongside award-winning comedians Bec Hill and Harriet Braine.

Created in collaboration with ‘Why Did The Chicken?’, RS Components will release a new episode or bonus episode of The DesignSpark Podcast weekly through August 17th.  The first episode, “Space Tourism” and its “expansion pack” are already available online and future episodes will focus on subjects like smart homes, food technology, biometrics, quantum computing and climate engineering.

The DesignSpark Podcast is available via the DesignSpark website or to subscribe and stream on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Podbean, Google Podcasts, Overcast, Pocket Casts, Stitcher, Luminary, Player FM and YouTube.

“We’re delighted to have The DesignSpark Podcast back for a third series. There is such a great chemistry between Lucy, Bec and Harriet as hosts. They really help to bring complex topics to life in an entertaining way thanks to their unique blend of comedy and technology,” said Robbie Dunion, DesignSpark outreach manager at RS Components.
