CES 2018 is almost here! It’s time to get your luggage ready, take a look at the schedule, and make sure you have comfortable yet sensible shoes to wear. However, you’re going to need something to listen to on the plane trip there to mask the sounds of the crying kid behind you and the couple arguing next to you. And, for once, I’m not using this as an opportunity to promote my own personal podcast that’s currently available on iTunes, Google Play, and Stitcher. I’m instead talking about a podcast that’s available on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and TuneIn. (Fun fact: TuneIn rejected my personal podcast.)
If you listen to one program on your way to CES, it should definitely be the “CES Tech Talk Podcast”, an official podcast from CES that focuses on, as you may imagine, all things tech. Not only does the podcast provide some fascinating perspectives on the world of technology, it also gives you the ideal framework for what you should expect at CES this year.
The most recent episode is a must-listen, as it features an in-depth discussion with CTA President and CEO Gary Shapiro about what to expect for CES 2018. Other episodes feature the founders of The Sports Innovation Lab, Toyota’s Hilary Cain, and Living In Digital Times’ Robin Raskin and Jill Gilbert. The episodes tackle a myriad of topics as well, ranging from how artificial intelligence will change in the future, how technology and sports meet, and what the developing world of smart cities will hold.
CES 2018 looks to continue the evolution of the event, which just celebrated 50 years of operation last year. Throughout the years of CES, we’ve seen the introduction of revolutionary technology such as VCRs, Blu-Ray players, and even Microsoft’s flagship console the Xbox. The official CES podcast will help you prepare for the next major innovation in the world of tech.
