Like a lot of people during the pandemic, I turned to TV and binge-watched Netflix, Hulu, the Discovery Channel, and Disney+. You name it, I was tuned in. Questions like, “Any new shows?,” or, “What are you watching now?” were parts of my daily conversation with friends and family. I’d see other friends’ Facebook posts asking for the latest recommendations, too, so I know I wasn’t the only one searching. While I love reading, books didn’t hold my attention the same way that they used to, and with virtually no new music being released, it seemed quiet. I wanted to listen to something recent, to still be a part of the world when I was protecting myself from Covid-19. Reality TV (okay, maybe just murder shows) and sitcoms just weren’t cutting it anymore. I wanted something more – something substantial.
Sure, I would venture into podcast territory now and again, but it seemed like something for when I was in the car – and I wasn’t going anywhere. Short-sighted, I agree, but alas, that’s where I was…until I found Digitalization Tech Talks.
I’ve always been fascinated by how things work and how they’re made, especially in the automation world. The show “How It’s Made” held a special DVR spot just for me. So, when I heard the Digitalization Tech Talks podcast and realized that it showcases what’s going on in process automation, particularly as it relates to digitalization, I knew I’d found that “substantial” thing.
