We love making this podcast!

But it's a lot of work!

We have so many engineering failures we want to tell you about, but some of them have straightforward causes or limited information. We've created shorter, mini failure episodes to tell these stories. They're like Failurology-lite.

If you want to support our show and get access to exclusive mini failure episodes, check out our Patreon page.
