Always practical

Great Show

Listened to the episode with Juan Gomez. He was such an informative guest. Loved hearing what he had to say about industrial revolutions and where industry is going. He’s so right that companies need to keep up with the latest technology, or they’re going to be left behind.

I’d highly recommend this podcast for anyone.

I will be checking out more of your episodes. If you are interested, check out the manufacturing podcast I host — “The Right Direction Podcast” from Compass Precision.
