What’s the Premise?

The Tech Field Day Podcast is a weekly discussion of enterprise IT topics featuring a constantly-changing panel of independent technical influencers. Each episode is centered around a single topic or premise, which we select to be thought-provoking and topical. The podcast is recorded in association with the Tech Field Day event series, and is often recorded on-site at our events.

In 2017 we launched the On-Premise IT Roundtable, a weekly podcast featuring the Tech Field Day delegates. Each episode featured a discussion centered around a premise statement. We chose the name as a play on words, since many used the term “on-premise” to refer to things on-location (or on-premises) as opposed to in the cloud. Between April 2017 and March 2024 we published 322 episodes and reached hundreds of thousands of listeners through Apple Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube, and more.

On March 26, 2024, we refreshed our branding, introducing the Tech Field Day Podcast. The format remains the same, with a panel of independent technical influencers discussing a central premise. Each episode’s panel is drawn from the Tech Field Day delegate community, typically focused on the current Tech Field Day event, with some episodes recorded on-premises! The episodes are moderated by Stephen Foskett or Tom Hollingsworth, our topic leads, who try to keep the discussion on-premise.

We post a new episode every Tuesday and post a video and accompanying article to our social media accounts as well. We do not insert advertisements but some “Spotlight” episodes do feature paying sponsors on the panel to discuss the topic of their choice. Our commitment is to provide an entertaining, technical, and thought-provoking discussion of a single area of enterprise IT every week!
