IT In The D – Episode 52: Cheap Chimp and Re-Source Partners

0

IT in the D, Episode 52.

Another really fun night in-studio, and thankfully without most of the sound problems that have plagued our last few episodes.

We were joined in-studio by Ken Jones, the creator of the Cheap Chimp App that can help you save some money on things you like to do around the area, and also Matt Loria from Re-Source Partners to talk about how companies can save a ton of money by doing things right and using a little forward thinking.

As usual…

ep52…we started off with news stories that have caught our eye over the past week.

The new Mad Max trailer.  The new Wonder Woman in the Batman vs Superman movie.  Our rants about Slow Roll, 5Ks and protests.  The Southwest Airlines twitter debacle and more.

And then we dove in with our guests for some great conversations about what they’ve got going on.

The Cheap Chimp app can be found in your Apple and Android stores, but for more information, check them out on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/cheapchimp
