This Week in Tech with Jeanne Destro-5-28-21: Innovation Akron & Cicada Safari

Written by

This week, how the work from home trend could be great for individual Akron-based software developers, but maybe not so great for the future of tech startups in our area, and how you can directly contribute to scientific research on a timely, but very noisy, natural phenomenon.

Featured guests are Akron's Bounce Innovation Hub COO, Jessica Sublett, and Dr. Gene Kritzky who is the Dean of the School of Behavioral and Natural Sciences at Mt. St. Joseph University in Cincinnati.

We talked to Sublett about their recently released economic impact report, and focused specifically on challenges and opportunities for tech in Akron.

Our conversation with Dr. Krtizky about how you can participate in scientific research with the mobile Cicada tracking app called Cicada Safari, was originally featured on this program in 2019, but is timely again this month with the 17 year return of the   "Brood X" Cicadas. 

**Please note, this program is also available as a podcast on Apple, Android, Spotify, and Stitcher.
