IT In The D – Episode 54: Blame It On The Rain

0

IT in the D, Episode 54, and yes, we were complete idiots and drove downtown in the midst of flooded roads, crazy rain, dead and abandoned cars, and mass hysteria for this one.

Unfortunately, Jeff got trapped somewhere around I-75 and 12 mile and couldn’t get any further.  However, we picked up a spare guest at Third Street before heading over to the studio, so we had a great show with some fun conversations.  And since we checking our phones and news updates let us know we weren’t going anywhere any time soon, we hung out for a while and just kept recording.

Which went probably like you’re assuming it did…

08112014We were joined in studio by our guests, who were equally insane enough to brave the weather and come on out to play, returning guest Billy Strawter from Social Coop Media and newcomer Joanna Dueweke from, among other things, Awesome Mitten.

I’m starting to think that we don’t actually know anyone who only has one job.

First thing’s first, major hat tip out to our show sponsor, Logicalis.  They’ve been around our events for a while now, but they’ve stepped up huge to become a sponsor of our efforts, and so expect to hear us talk about them and give them a ton of love in the coming weeks.
