[THEME MUSIC]

Kaitlin Milliken: Hey, you’re tuned in to Innovation Answered, the podcast for corporate innovators. I’m Kaitlin Milliken, the host and producer of this show.

Molli DeRosa: And I’m Molli DeRosa, our multimedia intern here at Innovation Leader. Innovation Leader is a media and events company that focuses on providing resources for research and development teams and innovators at large companies.

Kaitlin Milliken: Innovation Answered’s fourth season starts in May. And we have a really great lineup of interviews for you, including one that Molli did at Wayfair.

Molli DeRosa: So I had the opportunity to talk to Steve Conine, who is the co-founder and co-chairman of Wayfair. And we talked a lot about Wayfair Spaces, which is the AR program happening there, and the brick and mortar store that they just opened up in Natick. And we also talked about the culture of innovation that Wayfair aims to create and the future of innovation at the company. That’s going to be a really cool episode that you will not want to miss.

And Katie, I’m really excited about your future of food episode. Did you want to talk a little bit about that?

Kaitlin Milliken: That was super fun to report. I always enjoy covering food whenever I get the opportunity to. We had a really great conversation with Jodi Benson from General Mills on the main stage of our Impact event. And she talked a lot about how their company is responding to changes in the CPG space. We also took a deep dive into research and development at Impossible Foods.

Molli DeRosa: And we also talked to AARP, Fitbit, and W.L. Gore for this season. So there’s a lot of cool episodes coming up that you will not want to miss.
