5 Manufacturing Podcasts the Remke Team Loves - Remke Industries Blog

As business owners and operators, the team at Remke Industries, is always interested in professional development and self-improvement. Until recently, that involved attending a conference, reading a book, or perusing a relevant article. And while all those methods of learning are still possible today, it has become increasingly difficult to sit down and read a book cover-to-cover or set aside the time to attend a relevant conference taking place across the country. Welcome to the world of podcasts!

What’s a podcast?

Podcasts are digital files that people listen to. It’s like listening to the radio, but you get to decide what you want to listen to, when, and where you want to do it. It’s like a cross between DVR and the radio. Podcast channels can be found on almost any smart phone and are free.

Here’s a beginner’s guide to finding and using podcasts on your smartphone.

Podcasts serve as sources of entertainment but can also be your new favorite way to get timely information in a fast-paced business world.
