“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”


Arthur C. Clarke

The topic of how to manage and improve indoor air quality comes up a lot lately.


With all this interest come the offer of many “solutions” and devices.


Wish you could learn the back story of and technology inside some of these devices?


Ever wonder about the international perspectives on the topic of IAQ?

The Building HVAC Science podcast is pleased to welcome our very first guest from another continent!


Listen in as Clive Mitchell, better know as Big Clive, gives us his perspectives on a spectrum of IAQ improvement products from beneficial to downright dangerous.


If you have not seen his YouTube Channel, you need to stop and look up BigCliveDotCom on YouTube. He’s published thousands of dissection-like, teardown videos on a wide range of electrical and electronic products over the last 13 years.


Clive largely focuses on “cheap junk” teardowns and publishes a video every 2 days. Yet he also finds time to ponder such challenging societal questions like:

“Does pineapple belong on pizza?”

“What happens when you re-distill Jägermeister?”


He calls it the trashiest electronics channel on YouTube. Based on feedback, the bulk of his over 800,0000 subscribers seem to agree.


Big Clive lives on the Isle of Mann, a 221 sq. mile island with population of 83,000 located in the Irish Sea.
