Episode 93: Social Coop Media, Long Neck Strangler, Hacks Everywhere and More

0

Our third episode from the new studio is in the rear view mirror, and it marked the return of two very important things: beer from Falling Down Beer Company and the cheesy hotel front desk bell, both of which we’ve missed terribly.

Joined by our guests from Social Coop Media, Long Neck Strangler and Mess Bucket Comics, we covered a whole gamut of topics for your listening pleasure…

20150525_215224We originally had a couple of other guests scheduled for tonight’s broadcast, but whacky mayhem ensued and so we drafted some folks into hanging out with us to keep the conversation flowing.

A few hacks highlighted the early conversation – Starbucks has a problem with their gift cards, Adult Friend Finder got themselves breached and millions of rather sensitive and potentially embarrassing user details are out in the wild and already being used to blackmail people, some rather unpleasant items from the worlds of Twitter and Google Maps when it comes to overt racism, the return of Clearly Canadian, a few more items that make us feel all too old as Empire Strikes Back turns 35 and Real Genius turns 30, and a really miserable chain of events at a 16th birthday party.  All that and more got covered during our first segment.

ep93In segment two, we dove in with Billy Strawter of Social Coop Media.  In his first appearance at the new studio, we chatted through cringe-worthy social media fails, a new client that they’ve recently landed, some basics for a company or an individual looking to maximize their social media capabilities and more.  It’s always a great chat when we have Billy in, and this time was no exception.  Check them out at http://socialcoopmedia.com/

As always, our final segment recapped some of our earlier topics, covered a few things that we missed in the opening segment, and wrapped things up with our guests for the night.
