D.C. is often known for being a local community that thinks nationally. A podcast from a D.C. digital agency shows how that applies when it comes to the innovation ecosystem.

To explore innovation around the country, Fifth Tribe produces Campfire: The Impact and Innovation Podcast. Hosted by Fifth Tribe CEO Khuram Zaman, the podcast features interviews with leaders at companies, universities and experts.

In the latest episode, Zaman interviews Christy Wyskiel, the senior advisor to the president of Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins University for innovation and entrepreneurship, and executive director of Johns Hopkins Tech Ventures.

Topics covered in the episode include:

  • The role of universities in the nation’s innovation ecosystem.
  • Technology transfer, productization, and commercialization.
