Manufacturing Talk Radio hosts Lew Weiss and Tim Grady discussed the manufacturing year in review, from consumer spending, capital investment, and production capacity to exports, imports, hiring, and the vexing skills gap in the U.S. and around the globe. This potent content will also include resources that manufacturers can reference in the library of nearly 400 shows and more than 500 articles with weekly wrap-ups at www.mfgtalkradio.com.
Under the umbrella of Jacket Media Co, Manufacturing Talk Radio extended its content with the launch of Manufacturing Matters with Cliff Waldman, a noted economist and frequent industry speaker who was formerly the chief economist with Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation, or MAPI. Waldman regularly interviews business executives, thought leaders, and economists from the industry as well as think tanks that watch the ebb and flow of the economy that is usually driven by the strength or weakness of manufacturing in the U.S. and other countries around the world.
Manufacturing Talk Radio has been airing as a podcast since November of 2013, with interviews of industry executives, business thought leaders, respected economists, non-profit directors, elected officials, academic influencers, congressional representatives, and boots-on-the-ground manufacturing innovators to present a complete picture of the industry and the economy. It is one of several podcasts from Jacket Media Co that address the manufacturing industry in more depth and breadth than any mainstream media outlet.
