Fredericksburg, VA, October 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- On October 1, Voices From The Edge, a podcast from IST Research launched in the iTunes podcast store and is simultaneously available on other platforms including Soundcloud and Stitcher.
“This is a great step toward our goal of sharing the work we’re doing with a wide audience in order to attract new opportunities to apply our technologies, as well as talented technologists and technology partners,” announced company CEO, Ryan Paterson.
Current estimates show 46 million Americans are listening to at least one podcast per month, an increase of 17% over last year. The ubiquity of mobile devices and their ability to connect to car stereos makes the listening experience seamless from headphones to speakers during any commute, which are peak download times.
IST hopes to capitalize on the success of the platform by bringing a unique outlook that separates their show from standard technology-themed podcasts. The company’s mission is to deliver decision support innovation to the edge. “We do that by equipping people working in harsh conditions with revolutionary communication and web search tools. From the aftermath of natural disasters to remote locations disconnected from the world and on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves, such as victims of human trafficking, we can implement technology where others cannot,” adds Paterson.
While technology is the engine that drives the company, Voices From The Edge will also feature stories and interviews with team members from across the company, and include topics such as civil discourse, leadership and optimizing the efficiency of a distributed workforce.
Voices From The Edge is available to download and subscribe in the iTunes store, as well as to stream from the IST Research website at istresearch.com/podcast, with new episodes being added each week.
