Experimentation is a two-way street.

Look Both Ways is a podcast about ideas that aimed to change the world, came up short, but still have much to teach us. Each episode tells stories in two parts: 

  1. An unsung failure of the past.
  2. An unsolved challenge of the present. 

Join us as we travel in search of lessons to be learned from the often-overlooked “misses” of history. New episodes will be released every other Tuesday, from now until the end of time, unless otherwise noted. 


About your host

Scott Hermes is your average run-of-the-mill tech guy. Like most software architects, he has an MFA in Acting, has appeared on Jeopardy!, and is the 3rd victim in a straight-to-VHS cult classic slasher film. He has been working in the software business for 35 years. He began his tech career by manually moving 0’s and 1’s with a very tiny pair of tweezers until it was brought to his attention that programming languages exist to make things like that much easier.
