Imagine a future where machines could talk and tell us what they need––or a warehouse that could actively track not just your packages but also the wellbeing of the hardworking people behind the scenes of the assembly line. Advancements in the next generation of wireless connectivity and mobility are bringing that future closer with the promise of smart factories and connected production facilities. In this episode, we hear from Irene Petrick, Senior Director of Industrial Innovation in the Internet of Things Group at Intel; Pat McCusker, COO of Fast Radius, a company using 3D printing on an industrial scale to reimagine the supply chain; and Sean Petterson, founder of Strongarm Technologies, a company using data to help improve worker safety and reduce workplace injuries for factory and warehouse workers. Make sure to check out other episodes in this series featuring: Arthur Orduña, Chief Innovation Officer of Avis Budget Group and Oliver Cameron, Co-Founder and CEO of the startup Voyage.

Serial is a podcast from Serial Productions, a New York Times company, hosted by Sarah Koenig. Serial unfolds one story - a true story - over the course of a whole season. The show follows the plot and characters wherever they lead, through many surprising twists and turns. Sarah won't know what happens at the end of the story until she gets there, not long before you get there with her. Each week she'll bring you the latest chapter, so it's important to listen in, starting with Episode 1. New episodes are released on Thursday mornings.
