Fingers on the Pulse

Amazing podcast for anyone interested in the space where food meets technology. Michael Wolf's conversations with the movers and shakers in the industry are more than informative, they provide thoughtful insights into the types of problems that people are working to solve today.

Love it

Great show looking at both food tech and connected home. Now I need to make my kitchen smart. Too bad it won’t make me a better cook.
