    Her channel helped me through lockdown, I love it.

    I love watching Kathy's videos… Her personality just radiates with enthusiasm that keeps you wanting to know more and more… Thanks Dave, with your projected enthusiasm and her shining face of excitement, I reckon this interview will in time become one of your most popular presentations.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chet Spencer says:

    Kathy is a real gem! I happened to stumble onto her channel and binged 40 of her Lightning Tamers videos in one sleepless night, during a not so miserable bout of covid. Thank you Kathy!

    Hate the term, Invented !
    😉

    Been following Kathy for so long! Such a great educator!

    Thanks Dave for the introduction to another channel for me to watch.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SeaZenBones says:

    Yep, certainly love Kathy’s channel. Thanks for the opportunity to know her a bit more.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Farkas says:

    it would be cool if Kathy could do something like the James Burke series Connections.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eduardo Malveiro Pereira Leite says:

    Nice to see you again. Thank you Very, Very much. I really apreciate you worderful word 🙏. Bê happy!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim Savage says:

    I stumbled onto Kathy's channel a few years ago (and been subscribed since); the way she makes stories out of the topics really keeps it interesting and engaging. Great to see her channel is getting more visibility.
    It's fantastic to see these channels where people are sharing their knowledge for the love of it, similarly Daves Garage (Software/Tech), Rick Beato (Music). 👍

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alex Kaidon says:

    Please revisit the power supply Dave, I see you revisit it in a last podcast or something, but please for the love of god😭

    One of the best amp hour episodes

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gerrycave says:

    So happy to see them together!!! Kathy takes you masterfully through this adventure we call electricity.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nerdy Math Videos says:

    I love both of your channels. I saw this and thought "well, maybe I'll watch a couple minutes, but there's no way I'm going to watch the whole thing; it's just too long." Now, an hour and 40 minutes later, I wish there was even more – it was awesome.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WacKEDmaN says:

    good one Dave…(why isnt this on amp hour channel yet tho?!)…plz get Kathy back on… id like to hear more…

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thom1218 says:

    I didn't finish my PhD and I'm not a historian, but let me tell you why Tesla's a crackpot and Edison's a misunderstood creative "entrepreneur" – no thanks. I grew up being lied to about Edison by establishment education, while Tesla's story was scrubbed from being taught at all. This women reeks of some sort of bubbly last gasp of that establishment trying to claw back its former narratives about who's great and who's not, and I'm not buying it for a second after we learned about the heinous things that Edison did to animals as stunts to sell a failed DC distribution system, and his loathsome huckster-ish personality, not even to mention his dubious claims to inventing the first filament lightbulb.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kathy Loves Physics & History says:

    Thanks so much for having me on. I had so much fun.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul C Johnson says:

    Great fun and wonderful to hear the two of you with Kathy's great history lesson. Will buy the book.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keri Szafir says:

    Thanks, I'll definitely check Kathy out! Next one with Sabine Hossenfelder, please 🙂
    Fascinating stories of 17th/18th century mad science. Electroboom or PhotonicInductions would feel at home there, LOL! Kathy is absolutely 100000% correct that it doesn't just take the geeks like us, but also a system that appreciates their effort and provides a promotion, financing, mentorship etc. framework. Theoretically academia should be exactly that, but it doesn't always happen. So, lots of us mad scientists are on their own… Makes me think of how Tesla declined after he lost financing.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cliff Matthews says:

    Wow great work! We started promoting Kathy in EEVblog's "Electronic Resources – YouTube – Websites" section 5 years ago 🤗 Good solid non-stop activity pays off! 👍

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bert Blankenstein says:

    I watched a number of her videos and they are quite good. Awesome interview.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars larry785 says:

    It all started when Ben Franklin took his fork and stuck it into the electrical socket! 😂😂😂
