I borked last week’s show 15 minutes into it. Amazingly, we were in the process of talking about failure and embracing it, learning from it. So we kept the episode. Listen to the brief discussion and then hear me muttering to himself as I try to fix my screw-up. Hilarity ensues. So, THIS week, we’ll finish talking to Tom Igoe, one of the developers of Arduino (and I’ll try not to hit any wrong buttons).

We’ll also present some news from the world of making, and our favorite tricks, tips, and tools of the week. Be sure to call in for prizes that we’ll award during the program! The number is (646) 915-8698.
