We give an overview of past and present efforts to make seismology of δ Scuti and γ Doradus stars possible. Previous work has not led to the observational detection and identification of a sufficient number of pulsation modes for these pulsators for the construction of unique seismic models. However, recent efforts including large ground-based observational campaigns, work on pre-main sequence pulsators, asteroseismic satellite missions, theoretical advances on mode identification methods, and the discovery of a star showing simultaneous self-excited δ Scuti and γ Doradus oscillations suggest that we may be able to explore the interiors of these pulsators in the very near future.
