Detroit Bus Company, Pot and Box In-Studio Tonight, Networking Event Thursday and More for 11/16/2015

We’re back live in the studio tonight to broadcast episode 118 of our weekly live podcast, and we’re joined by Andy from Detroit Bus Company (and a whole lot of other projects) and Lisa from Pot & Box to talk about everything they’ve got going on.  Our next live and in person casual networking event is this Thursday at Blackfinn.  Our Podcast Detroit network picked up a couple pretty nice additions as Ming and Mike from AMC’s Comic Book Men have launched a show with us, along with a couple former guests who have launched shows about security and meeting your goals.  All of that, plus blog entries and more…

EventNewspaper_november2015As always, we start with the information for our next upcoming in-person networking event.

For November’s event, we’re back in the familiar stomping grounds of the back room of the Blackfinn in Royal Oak.  5pm start time.  No sales pitches, no agendas, no speakers…just great networking and relationship building with some of the best and brightest folks in the metro Detroit information technology community.

So join us there this week on Thursday, November 18th.  Details can be found here on the site –, on our Facebook page –, or in our Meetup group –

We’ve also got our December charity event on the books as well, so mark your calendars for that, too.  Details are at those same locations.

ITintheDnewspaper11162015Naturally, we’ll be talking about those events and more tonight during episode 118.

We’re joined by Detroit Bus Company and Pot & Box, as well as our usual roundup of events, news, items of interest and anything else that’s caught our eye over the past week.

Mics go live at 9pm like always, so join us by listening live from 9pm to 11pm, and then hit us up by firing up Twitter and hitting @ITintheD during the show…and our phone line is up and operational as well.  We love audience participation, so come along and play with us!
PD_mic_Twitter_500x500So…yeah.  It’s going to be a jam packed night…and week  Listen live to hear it all happen…and as mentioned up above, you’d do well to grab the Podcast Detroit app for Android or iOS and listen that way.  You can find those apps here:  As our network continues to grow, mature, and add new shows, we’ll be re-purposing the IT in the D stream and app space for a second Podcast Detroit broadcasting avenue, so you might as well start listening there now.

podcastdetroititunesAnd in case you haven’t been paying attention, we’ve got a pretty damn solid lineup of shows running these days that hit just about any area of interest.  Like sports?  We’ve got Gridiron, the guy who sings “Forward Down the Field” during Lions games live every Monday, and if you’re looking for an edgier point of view we’ve got Detroit Sports Rag live every Tuesday…or maybe MMA and boxing are more your thing, and we’ve got Undercard: Hand Combat Radio also on Tuesday nights.  Want to learn more about, and keep up to speed with, the latest security topics?  We’ve got repeat former guest Wolfgang Goerlich and the EncodeDecode security podcast.  The CEO of VizBe, Natalia Petraszczuk, and her show Eye Am bring you some unique perspectives on reaching your goals and some very cool local businesses.  As mentioned up above, Ming and Mike of AMC’s Comic Book Men have joined us with whole show about a wide variety of topics geeks want to catch…

Simply put, with over 30 shows running, there’s something for everyone.  Check out the entire lineup at and start listening.

On the blogs front…

magoodbtgMister Magoo is a fun tale of not being shortsighted in your networking and interactions with people, because you never know when it’s going to come back and bite you…hard:

The Fly is a cautionary tale of how to act if you want people swatting at you with newspapers or anything else handy

ridgecoverWe’ve all seen Fast Times at Ridgemont High (and if you haven’t, go watch it immediately), but did you know that there are some pretty valuable career lessons you can pick up from it if you’re paying attention?  There are:
