The Hosts

Your hosts are on a journey of learning just like you, the listeners. We all have our strengths and areas that need improvement. Blair & Steve aim to bring diverse guests with new technology, new processes, and sometimes a new take on the status quo. Please provide feedback, ideas for new topics, and let your hosts know what you want to hear.
