Episode 76: Quantum, Storage Solutions, Mickey Mouse Measles and More

0

Episode 76, and yet another episode that’s full of a lot of laughter and great conversations.

Thanks to our in-studio guests Anthony Tocco, Kyle Nelson, Andrew Mortemore, and Wade Kean, all from one of our sponsors – Quantum – for joining us…

IMG_2553From the Skymall bankruptcy to the measles outbreak at Disney, our first segment was all about the stories that caught our eye this past week.  How the FBI’s trying to say that using a TOR or even a VPN connection constitutes probable cause.  A drone showing up on the White House lawn.  Disney rejecting Lucas’ drafts for future Star Wars flicks and more.

After that, we dove right in with Quantum.

Quantum is one of our core sponsors, and so we’re obviously more than happy to have them in-studio, but it wasn’t a dry, boring commercial as one might expect.  Nope, we had a great and lively series of conversations about what they’re doing in the industry with the NHL, GoPro, and several other seriously interesting applications of their technologies.

In our final segment, we doubled back on a few earlier topics and wrapped things up for the week.

Tune in next week as we’re joined by the folks from Caliber Comics talking about their Nain Rouge comic with a Detroit flavor, our friends from Detroit Beer Press discussing their new issue, and Monica Wheat giving us some information about a new program in the city helping women develop and strengthen their skills.
