I am at CES2014 today. Since I cannot be in the Multi-Media Communications studio, I thought it would be fun to take a behind the scenes tour of the Tech Podcast Network’s remote streaming media studio we have built and operate on the show room floor at CES2014. This is a never seen before look at what it takes to cover an event like CES. There is a ton of equipment as well as large number of dedicated TPN podcasters, all working together to provide you the best CES2014 tech coverage of this fantastic event.

I also introduce a number of well known podcasters who happen to be at the studio getting ready to go to work as CES is just beginning it’s third day.
