CityCast is a monthly podcast series tackling topical subjects and issues around smart cities, as well as providing an update on all things CityVerve.

Each episode features an in-depth expert interview, covering anything from rural connectivity to how to bring disparate communities together, as well as a regular news feature, quick-fire questions in the ‘Meet the Partners’ segment, and an invitation to our guests to dispel a piece of jargon to our virtual Room 101.

So far, we’ve been joined in the studio by esteemed guests from Digital Catapult, Innovate UK, Cisco, Ordnance Survey, and Forum for the Future.

There are a number of ways you can listen to the podcast:
