Moore’s Lobby Returns and Welcomes a New Host For Season 3

After reaching over 120,000 downloads/listens in its first year of launching and ranking as the number two engineering podcast (Feedspot), Moore’s Lobby Season 3 debuts August 24th with a brand new host: Daniel Bogdanoff.

Daniel Bogdanoff is a Test Gear Geek at Keysight Technologies and is best known for his videos on the Keysight Labs YouTube Channel and has been published in numerous publications including NASA Tech Briefs, All About Circuits, and Hackaday. He has a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Texas A&M University.

Season 3 will be loaded with exciting new episodes, including the return of Arduino founder Massimo Banzi and the legendary Steve Sanghi of Microchip Technologies. We’ll welcome Michael Kagan, the CTO of NVIDIA, who will shed light on the current goldrush of GPUs. We’ll speak to Serge Leef, the MTO program manager of DARPA, who will explain how 25 words or fewer can determine whether your project will make it into the big league of DARPA funding. And we’ll also meet two NASA astronauts who will discuss the thrill of spacewalks, the technologies that are propelling space exploration forward, and the crucial role of engineers in making aerospace history. Those are just a few of the voices you’ll hear this season. Stay tuned for many more as Season 3 goes live.

Before the premiere of Season 3, let’s recap the excitement of Season 2. First off, we would like to thank the Season 1 and 2 host, Dave Finch. Dave Finch played an integral part in the podcast’s success and we could not have done it without him. 

Season 2 saw some pretty big names in engineering. We spoke with Josh Giegel, CTO and co-founder of Virgin Hyperloop, and one of the first “hypernauts” in the world, about Virgin Hyperloop’s goal to provide ground transportation up to 670 miles per hour to revolutionize modern transportation. 

We spoke with self-driving car service Cruise’s Mo ElShenawy, Senior VP of Engineering, about the hardware and software challenges of designing AVs, why AVs should be safer than human drivers, and why Mo doesn’t believe in “tech for tech’s sake.” 

One of our absolute favorite episodes from Season 2 has to be Arduino’s Massimo Banzi. Listen in as the co-founder of one of the most popular open-source electronic prototyping platforms talks about the beauty and backlash of making hardware simple enough for all and how Arduino transformed the maker movement.

Season 2 wrapped up with a bang as we hosted not one but TWO Google Senior VPs of Engineering, Google Fellows Luiz Barroso and Amin Vahdat. They discussed how important EEs are to the hardware and computing side of a fully connected world that relies on data centers.
