The Nexus Podcast

A podcast for smart people applying smart building technology—hosted by James Dice. Each week, we fire questions at the leaders in smart buildings. It's our chance to explore and learn with the brightest in our industry—together.

"This podcast is a must-listen for anyone working in real estate, or interested in real estate sustainability and technology. James has done us all a service as an interviewer unafraid to dive-in and discover the ‘Why’ and ‘How’ of the technology and sustainability trends shaping the built environment."

—Ben Myers, Vice President, Sustainability at Boston Properties

"This is, quite simply, the single best resource for learning about CRE technology. It's all here. James is excellent at breaking down the terminology in a way that is accessible. The early episodes are just as relevant today."

—Joe Gaspardone, COO, Montgomery Technologies

"A neutral and informative podcast that's pushing the smart buildings industry in the right direction!"

—Christina Nelson, Business Development Manager, Siemens
