Are you a fan of podcasts? I am. I love hearing experts share the who/what/where/when/how of their field. I've always heard that you learn something new every day. With podcasts, that's certainly true.
“Podcasts were created in direct response to our à la carte, on-demand lifestyles,” wrote Laura Jane Standley on The Timbre website in 2015. “They are one part of the shift in entertainment our smartphones, social media, and global living have inspired. They are the part that doesn’t adhere to traditional notions of time and space. Podcasts are built for highly specific groups of people.”
That includes people in manufacturing. A simple Google search led me to a wealth of podcasts that touch on manufacturing techniques, philosophies, and stories of success and failure. There are podcasts devoted to the topic of supply chain and entrepreneurship. There are so many podcasts that this list will only be a jumping off point. I hope you’ll use the comments space to let me know of other podcasts that you enjoy on the industry topics that matter most to you.
