CONEXPO/CON-AGG Radio

Previous nominations: 2018 (winner)

Listen to it here: http://www.conexpoconagg.com/visit/conexpo-con-agg-radio-podcasts/

You’ve probably heard of CONEXPO/CON-AGG, because it’s the largest construction conference in the world, but did you know that they also produce a podcast?  Hosted by Peggy Smedley, the monthly podcast features interviews with experts in many aspects of construction, such as technology, occupational health and safety, regulations and education. Currently on episode number 104, each show is about 30 minutes long.

The Lien Zone

Previous nominations: 2016, 2017 (winner), 2018

Listen to it here: https://www.thelienzonepodcast.com

After failing to retain its 2017 crown, the Lien Zone podcast looks to get back on top in 2019.  Hosted by Miami construction lawyer, Alex Barthet (@thelienzone), The Lien Zone Podcast discusses many aspects of the construction industry from a legal point of view.  This weekly podcast is a quick listen, with most lasting less than 10 minutes, but that’s all the time Alex needs to inform his audience about each topic.

The ConTech Crew

Previous nominations: 2016 (winner), 2017, 2018

Listen to it here: https://jbknowledge.com/thecontechcrew

The ConTech Crew (@TheConTechCrew) is also a previous champion, taking home the title in 2016, albeit under a slightly different name.  Previously known as the ConTech Trio, the podcast renamed itself after co-host Josh Bone departed the show amicably.  Hosted by JBKnowledge CEO James Benham (@JamesMBenham) and a now rotating cast of Rob McKinney (@ConAppGuru), Jeff Sample (@IronmanOfIT), and others, the ConTech Crew Podcast takes a weekly deep dive on construction technology topics and guest interviews with the construction tech industries biggest names.

The Constructrr Podcast

Previous nominations: 2018

Listen to it here: http://www.constructrr.com/episodes/

Returning to the contest for the second year, CONSTRUCTRR focuses on interviewing people within the construction industry who are either “crushing it!”, “innovatively efficient,” or “positively impactful.”  Hosted by Brittanie Campbell-Turner, a construction project manager and business consultant, CONSTRUCTRR is released at least once a week.  Many of the most recent episodes have taken a closer look at BIM collaboration and how blockchain technology, the same kind used by cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, could be used to positively affect the construction industry.

Contractor Conflicts

Previous nominations: first time nominated

Listen to it here: https://www.contractorconflictspodcast.com/

Although Contractor Conflicts is a new name in our contests, it’s hosted by someone very familiar to it - and also a past champion. Miami construction lawyer Alex Barthet, also host of The Lien Zone, couldn’t be satisfied only having 1 podcast, so he started a second one, but has a different audience in mind. While The Lien Zone focuses on contractors and those in the trades, Contractor Conflicts gives law advice to owners. The structure is very similar on both podcasts, usually coming in under 10 minutes in length,
