Wade is sharing the mic . . . . do you want to host?

You’ve seen the podcast, now be the host. FCSI The Americas is looking for a few guest hosts for a new version of our On Tap podcast series.

Our new series will feature a monthly 15-20 minute episode with more customer-focused interviews, featuring guests and topics you think your customers would like to hear more about.

If you’re a fan of podcasting and thought, “I would like to do that” let us know! You choose the topics (1-4 episodes) and guests (no more than 2 per episode) that you want interview in 2022. We’ll send you all the equipment and instructions to setup your own studio. It’s your episode, your questions, your podcast.

Submit your ideas and guest list to be considered by October 25th. Contact Wade Koehler (wade@fcsi.org) with questions.
