IT in the D Opens New Podcast Studio, will broadcast 24/7

DETROIT, Michigan, May 8th, 2005 – The IT in the D Show, which was launched in late-2013 will now be broadcast live from their own studios above Activ8 Gaming in Ferndale, Michigan.

What began as an outlet for founders Bob Waltenspiel and David Phillips to, in essence, record their ramblings, has turned into a wildly popular podcast that is listened to in all 50 states and 41 countries over 5M times…

The show’s hosts are Bob “The Sales Guy” and Dave “The Geek”. Topics include everything from local Detroit news stories, national technology stories, and things that made them laugh; guests have included everyone from database guru Jack Olson to the CIO of Oakland County to members of the Go! Comedy Improv Theater.

“The show is literally what do IT guys talk about at the bar.”, adds co-host Bob Waltenspiel, “The best reviews we get are people that tell us that it isn’t informative, but insanely entertaining. I can live with that.”

greenroomCo-host David Phillips adds, “We would have been happy knowing 20 people listened, but it literally hurts my head knowing that as of late, over 200,000 people are listening to our show every week. I can’t wait to see what’s next.”

Both hosts add, “A huge thank you goes out to Neil Nosakowski from Trinet for helping us put this thing together.”

We’ve really enjoyed our time at RawRadioX.com, and we wish everyone there nothing but the best and continued growth…but someone made us an offer we couldn’t refuse, and so we jumped at it.

So for those of you who listen live, please make sure you take a moment to check the new instructions on how to do so. You’ll be able to listen directly from our own site at http://www.ITintheD.com, and if you use TuneIn, you’ll now be searching for “IT in the D” to find us live.
