Via Satellite, the premier publication providing essential news and expert business analysis on the global satellite communications marketplace has successfully launched a technology focused podcast On Orbit. Hosted by Via Satellite Executive Editor, Jeffrey Hill, each 30-45 minute ‘On Orbit’ podcast provides in-depth information and discussion about the socio-economic value of space and satellite capabilities.

“We launched ’On Orbit’ to welcome new audiences to space, by talking about space technology in a different way,” said Hill. “When most people talk about space, they refer to the big civil space agencies and rockets - the most iconic elements of the industry. Very few people understand what our community is able to accomplish in space, because the technical information can be overwhelming. For ‘On Orbit,’ we want our guests to explain the value of space by answering questions about how these technologies will directly impact people’s lives. This helps people come up with their own answers to the question that serves as our tag line – What’s our business in space?”

Via Satellite launched the first episode of ‘On Orbit,’ Building Bridges Across the Digital Divide: Hybrid Satellite Networks with a conversation with Geeks Without Frontiers CEO David Hartshorn to decipher Digital Divide statistics and discuss the role that hybrid networks, satellites, and specifically the new LEO/MEO constellation satellites will play in providing connectivity to the world’s 4 billion people without access to broadband.
