As some readers of this publication might know, I was a writer at Gigaom until March 9, 2015. My former co-worker Barb Darrow and I did a weekly podcast where we discussed the week’s enterprise and webscale technology news and interviewed prominent figures in those spaces. Last week, Barb (who now writes for Fortune) and I kicked off version 2.0 of our podcast, which is now called The Datacenter Show.

Here is the first episode, which is available on SoundCloud and will soon be available on iTunes. In this episode, we discuss Microsoft’s big reorganization and why Apache Spark is so important, and interview Microsoft EVP of Technology and Research Harry Shum.

At some point soon, I will edit this post to include highlights from our discussion with Shum. I will do the same for future episodes, as well.
