Break down, from the ground up


About First Principles Podcast

Break down, from the ground up.

That is our simple motto. Question everything to its fundamental core. Simplify to the base tenets and no simpler. It is not sufficient to understand something by analogy alone. Rather to truly understand something, one must break it down into its first principles.

We are a couple of engineering graduates with a deep appreciation for the scientific process and its application to environmental subjects. We want to give our technical and personal take on things, and also provide you with the tools to understand the issues at stake. By using 'back of the envelope' calculations, we will show how rough estimates can help you quickly understand the gist of a complex idea. Click here to get the first episode.
