I look forward to this podcast hearing the experiences and advice of the full spectrum of colleagues in our industry from seasoned professionals to those just starting out in their career. They also reach out to civil engineers from a geographical and specialty range. This podcast keeps us connected as a profession. And Ben Walpole has a magnificent voice made for a podcast.

THE podcast for Engineers!

So many good things to say about this Podcast! This podcast features a diverse group of people involved in the Civil Engineering field whether it be directly or indirectly. Topics covered in the past include stress management, the power of storytelling, and the scooter revolution. Through the smaller segments, you get to learn about why people chose the civil engineering profession or even how their passions outside of work help them to be a better leader and/or engineer! I love this podcast format because I can listen to while at work and I feel like I get to "meet" so many different civil engineers across the globe through listening. I recommend this podcast to anyone in the Engineering community.
