As part of ongoing efforts to meet the informational needs of both its members and the equipment manufacturing industry at large, AEM has made its two podcasts – AEM Thinking Forward and CONEXPO-CON/AGG Radio – accessible via Amazon Alexa devices.

AEM’s monthly Thinking Forward podcast, hosted by Dusty Weis, serves to keep members and industry professionals apprised of potentially disruptive trends related to the agriculture and construction markets. Meanwhile, AEM’s twice-monthly, construction-themed CONEXPO-CON/AGG Radio podcast provides valuable information and insights on the latest construction-industry trends and technologies.

“Making AEM’s industry-leading podcasts accessible through Alexa devices is just the latest example of the association’s many concerted efforts to elevate its communications to its members and the markets they serve,” said AEM Vice President of Marketing and Communications Nicole Hallada. “And as technology continues to develop and evolve over time, AEM will respond accordingly and leverage it to offer new and innovative ways to deliver timely, relevant and valuable content.”

Accessing and listening to AEM’s Thinking Forward podcast on an Alexa device can be done in one of two ways:

  1. Download and open the Alexa app on your mobile phone, tap on the menu in the top left corner and go to “Skills.” Search “Anypod” and enable it as an Alexa Skill. Then try this command: “Alexa, ask AnyPod to play AEM Thinking Forward.” When the latest episode starts playing, you can say “Alexa, previous episode” or “Alexa, pause.” 
  2. Download and open the Alexa app on your mobile phone, tap on the menu in the top left corner and go to “Music, Video and Books.” Scroll down to the "Music" section and click on “TuneIn.” Search “AEM Thinking Forward” and select either the podcast or one of the episodes. Once you tap on an individual episode, it will start playing on your Alexa device.

To access and listen to the CONEXPO-CON/AGG Radio podcast on an Alexa device:

  • Download and open the Alexa app on your mobile phone, tap on the menu in the top left corner and go to “Music, Video and Books.” Scroll down to the “Music” section and click on “TuneIn.” Search “CONEXPO-CON/AGG Radio” and select either the podcast or one of the episodes. Once you tap on an individual episode, it will start playing on your Alexa device.

The AEM Thinking Forward podcast is also available for listeners and subscribers on many other popular podcasting apps, including iTunes and Stitcher. Episodes are posted on the AEM website at aem.org/think, and a link to every new episode is included in the AEM Industry Advisor e-newsletter.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG Radio currently airs two new episodes each month. Listeners can choose episodes via the CONEXPO-CON/AGG website or through their mobile devices (apps include iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, Spotify and Google Play).

CONEXPO-CON/AGG Radio -- recently named Best Construction Podcast of 2018 by Construction Junkie -- is also complemented by AEM’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG 365 industry-trends articles and weekly e-newsletter.
