The hosts are Dave Jones from the EEVblog in Sydney Australia, and Chris Gammell from Chris Gammell's Analog Life
are 2 electrical engineers who discuss a wide a range of topics related

After listening to The Amp Hour, I made my way
over to Dave Jones' site, EEVblog, and found some great video blogs. I

when I am "experimenting". So this looked like a good solution.
Check out 'The Amp Hour' and the EEVblog, you will not be disappointed.
