A few weeks ago we shared the American Boiler Manufacturers Association's first ever "Inside the Boiler Room" podcast.
What did you think of Episode 1?
The first episode was an introduction to the podcast. We learned a little bit about the ABMA and some of the topics of future podcasts.
Now, with episode 2, we are really beginning to sink our teeth into everything boiler related. This podcast focuses on the current administration, energy, our environment, and how all of these variables affect the boiler industry.
Episode 2 is significantly lengthier than Episode 1...which is totally okay with us. The more information, the better! However, we know a lot people function with limited time. To help make this information easily accessible, we are going to continue to create a list of timestamps of important topics!
We hope you find this podcast informative and interesting! We sure did.
