Technologically Speaking Podcast

The Official S&T Podcast

Join us for candid conversations about the science of homeland security.

The Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) invites listeners to take a deep dive into the science of homeland security and meet the experts on the frontlines of keeping America safe.

Technologically Speaking is a new podcast series that delivers insightful, thought-provoking, and unscripted conversations about timely national security challenges and the scientific solutions S&T is developing to tackle them. We even sprinkle in some behind-the-scenes stories, personal anecdotes, little-known facts, and technology tidbits so you can get to know S&T, and its people, a little better.

These casual conversations are unlike anything S&T has done before, but innovation is in our DNA.
