I mention what influenced me to start the podcast and what tips I have for those who wanted to start their own. There have been some pain points in producing this podcast so I provide some tips.

Additionally, I talk briefly about my background and how I got started in wireless. Then I talk about my day to day challenges working at a university

I had a great time on this episode. It’s interesting to be on the other end of the podcast where I’m actually answering the questions instead of asking the questions.

Thanks again to Todd Smith for being the host. He did a great job and I look forward to having him back on the show again.
