Even widespread power outages couldn’t stop Episode 96 of our weekly live podcast from happening. We lost one guest due to the reschedule due to travel commitments, but we were joined by some really great guests for some fun discussions about everything from best practices with making and using video, an event next week that you should check out, a new dry cleaning service that’ll pick up and deliver not just for you but for companies as well, as well as some stories and items around the city…
As our 1996 based intro closed out, we got rolling with the latest news, events and items that have caught our eyes over the past week. Naturally we talked a little bit about the power outage that caused us to roll on a Tuesday night instead of our usual Mondays. Good times. As noted, we lost one of our guests in the midst of the chaos due to travel requirements, but we’ll have him back on as soon as his schedule permits.
We talked about the (and we use this term loosely) “hacking” story coming out of Major League Baseball, the OPM breach that has an impact on anyone who’s ever had a security clearance or any of their references, more fun and humor with Amazon product reviews and more.
For segment two, we talked with Scott and Kris from Make Moore Media. From working with Herman Moore of the Lions to our own “What Is IT in the D” video, these guys have done some great work since launching and we couldn’t be happier for them. A good series of conversations about best practices with video, what’s realistic and what isn’t, why “4k” is the buzzword causing migraines and more.

In our next segment, we talked with the guys from YumVillage about the Professional’s Night Out – Detroit event taking place next week. Kicking off its inaugural year, Professional’s Night Out (PNO) will provide a semi-formal networking and dining experience for you, the entrepreneur, the working professional, the creative, the foodie. A first of its kind, 3-part indoor + outdoor event, PNO will exclusively bring super-achievers from across Detroit, together for the dual purpose of connecting and building with world-changing thinkers and innovators, as well as experiencing and enjoying some great eats and art. The evening will kick off with our Innovator’s Meet & Greet, presented by Dreamers+Doers, which will run from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m., followed up by our Dining With Doers Dinner Party, from 8 p.m. – 10 p.m. and close out the night with our Dessert Afterglow. Check them out at http://www.pnodetroit.com/, and use discount code ITintheD to take $15 off the ticket price!
Our last segment dove in with the guys from Dryv, a new Uber-esque dry-cleaning service that’s just launching here in the area. They come to your house, pick everything up, get it cleaned, and then bring it back to you…without killing you with a heavy price markup thanks to their model and volume based relationships. They’re also offering programs for companies and their employees, so you should definitely talk to your HR folks about a setting up a new office perk. They’re still building out their service areas, and you can help shape things by grabbing the app and signing up at http://dryv.com/detroit/, and best of all, they went ahead and setup an ITintheD discount code while we were on the air with them so you can get rolling on the cheap.

And just as a little bonus, we had Daily Detroit in the house talking about some of their latest stories, info around the city, and more. Check them out at http://www.dailydetroit.com/
