Join Gareth and Mike as we chat about the technology used in scenic automation. We dive into machine design, programming, and electronics, and how all that stuff can be used on stage to bring motion into live performances. We also might take an occasional detour to talk about other interesting gadgets.

Its just like sitting around the lunch table with these guys. Great conversation and lots of information, you will defiantly learn a thing or two.
Great look behind the curtain!
This podcast is an insight and fun look behind the scenes at a scenic automation company. Gareth and Royal are smart and funny. This is perfect for both the professionals and future professionals. It nice to see all the thought and effort that goes in behind the scenes of making innovative automation products both stock and custom. Great work guys!
Great for the automation nerd...
Gareath & Royal allow you a hugh peak behind the curtain in how (& why) they do stage automation. As they talk about things, they don't "dumb it down" nor do they "techno-babble" the process, allowing the listen to understand what they are discussing regardless of their background. The only unfortunate thing is they are very busy, but I look forward to each time I see a new episode in my podcast feed. Thanks for the great podcast!
