Ninachino ,

Yes!! The Geomob podcast is long overdue

I’ve been to a number of Geomob events and love attending them to get an inside scoop on what is happening in the world of Geo/Location and general mapping fun.

I’m really pleased that we now have the podcast edition to look forward to (especially helpful in times of lockdown!).

Ed is a great host and there’s some very knowledgeable speakers on the show. I’d recommend listening to the John Craig interview on location based advertising.

What's not to like if you are a geek and into Geo?

Disclaimer: I'm one of the co-hosts of the podcast.

Ed and I are old friends who've worked in Geo for a long time. Ed runs the Geomob series of events in London, Munich, Barcelona and Lisbon. I've mentored and invested in Geo start-ups for over decade

In this podcast we chat about trends and current topics in Geo, we share our experiences in our current projects and businesses and we invite friends and past speakers from Geomob to join us
