This article has been UPDATED (12 March 2020) to reflect the event’s new dates.
The GeoTalk podcast is back in production for its 2020 season! Hosted by Geosynthetica’s Taunya Allen and Chris Kelsey, GeoTalk covers innovation, design, technology, standards, and other advances shaping the fields of geosynthetics and geotechnical engineering.
BE INTERVIEWED ON GEOTALK
Engineering succeeds—infrastructure succeeds—when we share our stories. GeoTalk’s listeners are the experts we seek to interview! We invite your participation.
What does appearing on the podcast require?
Each episode requires 15 – 20 minutes of your time on a call (or in person–see below GeoU 2020 news). That’s it! The hosts will work out a few key points to frame a discussion ahead of recording and then let the dialogue follow its course.
Have a topic you’d like to hear or contribute to? Contact us. The 2020 Season (beginning late February) will initiate a weekly release and a much more expansive series of conversations. Early subjects we are already preparing include puncture protection design differences between Europe and the US, sediment retention devices, liner integrity surveys, and more.
The hosts invite your suggestions for topics and experts to interview (including YOU).
Make your voice heard!
