The new InfraIntelligence podcast, presented by ReNew Canada and sponsored by KPMG, provides a unique opportunity to hear from industry leaders about the future of infrastructure. Andrew Macklin, Managing Editor of ReNew Canada, hosts the podcast series.

The 10-episode series focuses on infrastructure development in the next decade and beyond, discussing how urban centres will have to build infrastructure in the face of rapid technological development and a changing climate in order to create the smart, connected cities of tomorrow. It’s expert insights into the future of infrastructure without the conference fee.

Each episode of InfraIntelligence runs less than a half hour, providing an excellent opportunity to your education, understanding, and readiness for the future of infrastructure in less than the time it takes to drive to the office.

The first episode will be launched during the week of October 28, 2019. The episodes will be released every two weeks, with the exception of the anticipated release date that would fall during the Christmas holidays. Once each episode is posted, you will be able to read below for a preview of the podcast, as well as a link to listen.
