Project Sustainability

Each month, the show welcomes a new guest who will unpack a specific topic, spanning multiple episodes. Host Peggy Smedley will dive into her guest’s desire to provide alternatives that will empower each of us on what it means to have a healthy home. Simply all the innovations from energy, air, water, lighting, security, appliances, and more that impact our homes.

With a focus on technology—and how it works in the home—listeners will gain a deeper understanding of what’s coming next and what’s already possible today. Determined to give a glimpse into the future, Smedley ends every series with the same question: How can we do even more simply by managing our energy consumption to help make the world healthier, safer, and greener today and for future generations?

Peggy Smedley and Don Bent, chief operating officer, Oshkosh Defense, talk about how the company has built trucks for more than 100 years. He says while vehicles are the business, it is so much more than that and it has a mission to protect and serve communities around the world.

They also discuss:

  • A new facility in South Carolina to produce the next-gen delivery vehicle for the U.S. postal service.
  • The amount of jobs that will be created from a new facility and the rise of EV manufacturing in South Carolina.
  • How to train workers on new technology in vehicles.
