Episode 250- Dr Megavolt

By day, Austin Richards is an engineer and scientist, but by night, he’s Dr Megavolt, blowing the minds of audiences everywhere by showing them the magic of science.

We talked with Dr Megavolt about his early days and his complete lack of fear in building a Tesla coil, something which makes both Luke and Heidi quake in worry. We then move onto some of his most amazing performances, including several years at Burning Man.

For more information on Dr Megavolt, check out his website, or follow him on Facebook, on YouTube. And there is a documentary about him, titled, “Dr Megavolt: From Geek to Superhero,” available to watch right now on Tubi.
