IAPMO Launches The “Authority Podcast: Plumbing & Mechanical” Podcast Series

IAPMO is excited to announce the launch of a new podcast series, “The Authority Podcast: Plumbing & Mechanical.” Hosted by Christoph Lohr, IAPMO’s vice president of Strategic Initiatives, the series discusses the latest trends in plumbing and mechanical safety, sustainability, and resiliency with some of the brightest minds in the industry.

The premiere episode, released Tuesday, is the first of a two-part series discussing creative synthesis, sustainability, and water safety with Mary Ann Dickinson, past president and CEO of the Alliance for Water Efficiency, and Dr. Janet E. Stout, president of Special Pathogens Laboratory.

An exciting list of guests and organizations are lined up for the first season, which focuses on the concept of plumbing resiliency, including but not limited to:

  • WELL Building Institute, USGBC, GBI, GBC
  • Kyl Institute at ASU
  • Water Reuse Foundation
  • Billy Smith (ASPE), Kerry Stackpole (PMI), Dave Viola (IAPMO)
  • DigDeep

“I am incredibly excited for IAPMO to add our voice to the national conversation in this new format.  We are having the needed critical conversations with brilliant experts” Lohr said. “These experts are the authority in their field, and bring the needed specialization to policy discussions.  This focus of bringing specialized experts (i.e., subject matter authorities) to various jurisdictions (i.e., authorities having jurisdiction) is where our podcast got its name.”
