First, a story of successful American manufacturing. Drew Greenblatt, President of Marlin Steel Wire Products, joins host Dave Robertson to discuss the transformation his business underwent to survive in the competitive manufacturing space. When Drew bought the business it was a Brooklyn-based company responsible for making the baskets you might find in a bagel shop. He took that business and completely re-imagined it to become an innovative small manufacturer.

In the second half of the program Dave talks to David Sax, author of "The Revenge of Analog: Real Things and Why They Matter," who explains why he believes the tangible is here to stay.

The first guest is Otto Berkes, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of CA Technologies and the former CTO of HBO, and one of the founders of Xbox. He and host Dave Robertson discuss his new book, "Digitally Remastered: Building Software into Your Business DNA," in which he shares his first-hand experiences on what it takes to overcome corporate hurdles, reshape business models and develop a culture that can thrive in the digital world.

In the second half of the show Robertson's guest is Dave Wright, CEO of CFM and Creator of MyZone, who talks about the wearable technology market and how it's becoming a very crowded field of competitors.
