Michael Faraday - Father of Electricity (Feat Special Guest Kathy Loves Physics and History)
Back To The Past: The Alternate History Podcast
We wanted to thank Kathy Joseph once again for appearing as a guest on this week's episode. We had a great time discussing with her about Michael Faraday, otherwise known to Kathy as the father of Electricity. Make sure to check out her latest book, The Lightning Tamers: True Stories of the Dreamers and Schemers Who Harnessed Electricity and Transformed Our World , amazon now! https://www.amazon.com/Lightning-Tamers-Harnessed-Electricity-Transformed/dp/B0B4KMYGP8 Short description of the book: You flick on a light without thinking about it. But what about the fascinating and bizarre stories hidden behind that simple action? Fortunes were made and lost, ideas stolen, rivalries pursued, dogs electrocuted, beards set on fire, arms amputated, and decapitated human heads reanimated all with the invention and evolution of electricity. In this physics and engineering chronicle disguised as an electric time-travel adventure, Kathy Joseph, physicist, educator, and creator of the popular Kathy Loves Physics documentary channel on YouTube, shares the story of electricity through the linked breakthroughs of men and women in science. Go on a wild journey covering over 400 years of history to discover for yourself the unlikely yet true stories of the characters who paved the way for modern electricity. From the assistant who invented the electric light 140 years before Edison to the severed ear that led to the telephone, follow the chain of experiments, inventions, and discoveries through time. Beginning with Queen Elizabeth’s bored doctor naming electricity after jewelry, the winding road that leads to you to charge your phone at night will enthrall you.

Michael Faraday was an English scientist who contributed to the study of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. His main discoveries include the principles underlying electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism and electrolysis. Although Faraday received little formal education, he was one of the most influential scientists in history. It was by his research on the magnetic field around a conductor carrying a direct current that Faraday established the basis for the concept of the electromagnetic field in physics. Faraday also established that magnetism could affect rays of light and that there was an underlying relationship between the two phenomena. He similarly discovered the principles of electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism, and the laws of electrolysis. His inventions of electromagnetic rotary devices formed the foundation of electric motor technology, and it was largely due to his efforts that electricity became practical for use in technology. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to discuss this further, or just want to contact us?

Everything has to have a beginning, so too with the science of electricity. Here we learn the very rudiments, the inceptions of science that have revolutionized the world. Faraday explains in a simple way the truths of electricity. (Volume 30, Harvard Classics)

Journey #87 - MICHAEL FARADAY: The Blue-Collar Christian Who Electrified the World
Science + God with Dr. G
Odds are you might not have heard the name Michael Faraday. But you certainly have heard about the invention for which he is most famous: electricity! On this journey, Dr. G tells you the fascinating life story of the man who is generally said to be history's first professional scientist. What is not generally reported, however, is that Faraday was also a devout and humble Christian. Hear the full, riveting story now. Read more about Faraday's amazing life here: Five Equations That Changed the World, by Michael Guillen How a dynamo (electric generator) works. Dr. G wants to hear from you!

Two sticks, a table, and a pail were the commonplace implements used by Michael Faraday to demonstrate great scientific truths. (Volume 30, Harvard Classics) Faraday sends "Experimental Researches" to Royal Society, Nov. 6, 1845.
[Roa's Podcast] S2E3 - My Favorite Scientist: Michael Faraday
Roa's Podcast: The Life of an Asian
The ability to connect to the world through video, audio, satellite started with Michael Faraday. The engine, the motor, the transformer are thanks to Michael Faraday. But, his extraordinary genius isn't even what makes him my favorite!Whether you are interested in sciences or not, I believe that it's important for everyone to know a little bit about the man who found fundamental connections between electricity, magnetism, light and gravity. I want to tell you about his accomplishments, his genius and his admirable qualities, along with exactly what makes him my favorite scientist: the fact that he was a man of faith, his battle with mental illness and that he came from poverty to become the most celebrated scientist of his time.I love picking favorites. Lucky for me, it's a great way of learning about people who made an impact on humankind and being inspired by their journey.Don't forget to follow me on IG @roa_podcastEnjoy!!
What is the first name that comes to mind with the mention of electricity? Thomas Edison? Nikola Tesla? Perhaps even Benjamin Franklin. Yet Michael Faraday has every right to belong on that list, too, as it's impossible to imagine a world without his contributions to science. From chemistry to electricity, from theoretical science to practical experiments that revolutionized the world, Faraday's contributions can't be overstated. And there's more to the story than just success; it's also a poignant tale of how anyone — regardless of their background, their education, or their upbringing — can make a real impact.
