Join us for a special release of our 100th Made in America podcast episode! There's a bit of a twist; Chris DiPentima, President and CEO of CBIA and former podcast guest, takes over the show and puts Ari Santiago in the hot seat.

Chris asks Ari some hard hitting questions including ones sent in from former podcast guests. The two highlight the story of how the Made in America podcast came about and the future of the show.

Ari reflects on the past 100 episodes and covers topics related to CT's manufacturing ecosystem, mid-course podcast corrections, embracing manufacturing technology, and how manufacturing and business leaders can lean into the future. He discusses some golden nuggets and stories he's heard from podcast guests and details how the state of CT can continue to support manufacturing.

Stick around for the rapid fire round of questions at the end; you will not be disappointed!
