IT in the D, Episode 65.
We managed to clean things up to the point where it’s a pretty solid episode with a lot of great information in it, so give it a listen as we’re joined by Billy Strawter of Social Coop Media and Kevin Krason of Biznet.
And look, let’s be right up front about what the live listeners already know – we had some serious technical difficulties throughout the broadcast and recording process this time around. So, there are some jumps in conversation, some snippets that got missed here and there…but again, still a solid episode with a lot of good chats and solid information in here for you…
