Over the last couple of years we've had a great response to our invitation to Vendors and Automation Experts to come on The Automation Podcast and educate myself and the audience about products and technologies.

And with several more episodes already recorded and scheduled to be released in the coming weeks, I though it was a good time to look back at what our all-time top ten podcast episodes have been up to now:
