Our conference coverage continues this week when we air Tom’s visit to the 2010 Contingency Planning and Management EAST show at NYC’s Javits Center.  Commissioner Bruno from the NYC OEM and Amy Herman took time to speak with Tom at the early November event.  Find out more about their work and other guest on the SHOW PAGE.

We are still taking suggestions and feedback for 2011.  What topics are important to you?  What topics can we dive into that are still alien to you?  We pride ourselves in devoting 3/4 of our show to in depth interviews with guests.  While most news outlets bring you tech appetizers, we cover a topic from soup to nuts.

Next week, we are going to close the year with our FLASH conference coverage.  We have a contingency if that doesn’t work out… like related news to keep you busy while we try to find that audio file…
