The Inc. Tank

The Inc. Tank is a podcast where thought leaders discuss the impact of leading-edge technology on business and society. Hosts Christina Elson and David Yang interview entrepreneurs, policymakers and researchers on the front lines of disrupted industries. Elson, an anthropologist and business strategist, together with Yang, an expert at cutting-edge digital transformation initiatives, have fascinating and informative conversations with their guests about technologies that could transform existing revenue models and unlock fierce competition in the marketplace.

Past episodes have included discussions on AI, biotech, blockchain, cybersecurity, the private sector space industry, and the future of transportation with experts like Joshua Gans, Yaya Fanusie, Eric Alston, Shelli Brunswick, Mike Heslin and Mark Walsh. Each episode captures the chemistry between our hosts and their guests to spotlight various aspects of the technologies including staying power, investment opportunities, job market impact and related ethical issues. The bold ideas and thorough analysis provided in these engrossing conversations are what make The Inc. Tank so unique—and so powerful.

The Inc. Tank is a major part of the Ed Snider Center’s initiative to educate future thought leaders by arming them with information about market disruption. The show’s deep dives into technologies making waves in industry will help provoke thought in today’s businesspeople about their own sectors, create inspiration in the young people who will be creating tomorrow’s value in the market, and provide entertaining, engaging case studies for anybody interested in how technology is changing the world around them. So far, it’s reached over 16,000 listeners and garnered a dedicated social media following. And the show is poised to attract greater attention and rapid growth in audience.
