2018 has been a massive year for our country and NC, and there have been a number of highs and lows throughout the year.

Jason Eder, Michael Baylor and Laura Blake sit down for the final time this year to curate a list of their favorite tech and innovation stories that focus on our backyard and our wider world. The team celebrates achievements in capital and exposure for local startups and businesses and laments close calls and places our region missed on relocating companies and layoffs.

After celebrating the growth of our region with the number 1 story of the year, the team shares a quick final thought about how to be our best and most innovative selves going into a new year.

This episode will be the final show of the year, and our team will take a break until late January/ early February to plan content for 2019 while figuring out better ways to serve our listeners.
