Podcasts are back on TechRepublic.

Today we’re unveiling episode #1 of “The TechRepublic Podcast” where we talk about the latest developments in technology and what they mean for business and society. Bill Detwiler and I are going to be hosting the weekly show and pulling in the amazing members of the TechRepublic team to join us.

For the first episode we had senior editor Teena Hammond and staff writer Erin Carson. Teena led the discussion of the Apple Watch since she covers the wearables beat for TechRepublic and was a fashion editor in a former life. Erin led the discussion of virtual reality and its emerging business uses in healthcare, marketing, and other verticals.

We’re in the process of putting the podcast on iTunes and other podcast directories, but we’re putting the first episode in your hands so that you can send us feedback. There are lots of great tech podcasts out there. We’re doing one aimed at people who are trying to use technology to get work done, make their businesses and their professional lives more efficient, and move society forward. That’s a lofty mission, but those are the goals we chase every day on TechRepublic.

We’d also like to give a shout out to our audio producer for The TechRepublic Podcast, Dan Kamas. Dan also happens to be the Product Manager of TechRepublic so he works hard every day to make the site better and more usable. Thanks Dan.
