Internet of Things news and analysis: smart home, industrial internet of things, enterprise internet of things, and more. Joins co-hosts Stacey Higginbotham and Kevin Tofel as they dissect the week's latest IoT news.



Stacey Higginbotham has covered technology since 2001. In my years covering tech I became more fascinated by the stuff we were able to do on vast computing networks and ever speedier mobile and wireline broadband networks. Finally all of the elements of the technology I’ve covered in more than a decade have culminated in this moment and we’re creating the internet of things.



No matter what you call it, we’re at a pivotal moment in the evolution of human creativity, business creation and productivity gains. We could see the gains we make in these next few years help us conserve resources and let us lead safer and healthier lives or we could open the door to a dystopian society where our every thought is monitored and our every utterance is effectively for sale. I hope to explore all of these issues, the people who will make it possible and the devices that will lead us there in the IoT Podcast. I hope you will join me.

One of my favorite pods

Congrats on 300! I’ve been listening since early-pandemic, and so glad I did. Entertaining and informative every week, thanks so much and keep up the great work, Stacey and Kevin!

Improve the audio quality, limit the ads!

I really want to enjoy listening to this show but just can't. Only a third of the show is actual news/content. The rest is either an advertisement disguised as a story, or a boring phone interview. The audio quality is so awful, I usually end up shutting it off whenever they go to someone talking over the phone. It's 2021 and yet this podcast about the latest technology insists on using antiquated technology (a sponsored PSTN line) to record content. Why not use Zoom/Skype or just record locally and sync the tracks!
