Announcing The Coffee Break
Starting in 2017, we’ll be adding a 15-minute interview to Network Break, which we’re calling the Coffee Break. Some of these interviews will be sponsored to help cover the costs of producing the podcast. As with other Packet Pushers sponsorships, we’ll work to make sure the interviews are relevant, compelling, and informative. And if there’s someone you’d like to hear on the Coffee Break, let us know.
