In season 2 of the popular Risk podcast series, we continue exploring the various types of risks inherent in the industry and in life - risks that speak to innovation, hard work and leaning into fear. This fifth episode of the new season features a conversation between SSPI Director of Development and Innovation Lou Zacharilla, Katherine Gizinski, CEO of ManSat, and Carol Craig, founder and CEO of Craig Technologies.
