The Fat Man and Circuit Girl

The Fat Man and Circuit Girl Cast 9 from Jeri Ellsworth on Vimeo.

I don’t know why it took so long, but recently someone turned me onto The Fat Man and Circuit Girl show, which has been airing on the net for almost six months now.  This is definitely the quirkiest and most entertaining electronics themed webcast I have ever seen.  The episode above includes an awesome segment about making a floppy drive reverb machine and thoughts on brewing coffee with PID, which reminded me of some other projects I have worked on…

The Fat Man and Circuit Girl are:

George Sanger – (

Musician, artist, composer of music for several video games, most notably Maniac Mansion on the NES and Wing Commander.

Jeri Ellsworth – (blog, twitter, flickr, vimeo, youtube)

Self taught electrical engineer.  Designer of the C64 DTV.

I had a chance to meet George and Jeri at NOTACON in Cleveland this month.  They are as entertaining in person as they are on video!  Jeri told me that she will be at the Maker Faire in San Mateo this year, showing off her Easy-Bake Chip Lab.  I am really looking forward to seeing it!

They have a website for the show at  You can also follow @fmandcg on twitter.

Who needs television when you can stream a show like this?
