    Episode 36: A Conversation with "Board Talk" hosts Phil Zarrow and Jim Hall

    Episode 36: A Conversation with "Board Talk" hosts Phil Zarrow and Jim Hall.

    Welcome to a special episode of Reliability Matters, recorded live at IPC APEX Expo, thanks to my friends at Scoop TV. You may hear some background noise as I’m not in my usual studio rather, I’m on a busy and rather loud trade show floor.

    Today, we are bringing back two previous guests, Phil Zarrow and Jim Hall of ITM Consulting. Phil and Jim host Board Talk, a popular broadcast where they field assembly-related questions and provide answers in a style only they can deliver.

    We’ll discuss how they go about “fixing” their customer’s problems and their new upcoming book, Trouble shooting electronic assembly, conversations from the board-talk crypt.
