Hash Define Electronics Podcast

This show is for anyone who is interested to hear and possibly learn from an embedded engineer turn contractor that occasional is joined by guests. Theme-wise, it's Embedded electronics with a bias to robotics and humour.

**Warning, this show is essentially Ronald's logbook and just like anyone new to the world of logbooks, the ration between doodles and graph will eventually settle to a nice stable balance. Until then hang on for the ride because this might will be bumpy.
