The Podcast explores the fast-paced world of emerging tech from the landscape of the Midwest, with a distinctly non-coastal vibe. Hosted by technologists Fully Teasdale and Dave Costenaro, the Podcast highlights great work across artificial intelligence and machine learning, data science at scale, virtual reality and augmented reality, and robotics and robotic process automation, and features folks from boots-on-the-ground implementers to vision-creating founders. The Podcast is produced by, a 501c3 whose mission is to increase collaboration around 4th-industrial revolution technologies in order to advance the human experience. We’re doing it from the heart of the Midwest, where the 1st- and 2nd-industrial revolutions brought growth and innovation, and where the 3rd eroded jobs and urban landscapes. This time, we will not be left behind. We will lead, not follow. Help us Prepare.
