IT in the D, Episode 39…another rant to kick things off, this one based on a stunning revelation that came our way last week about a group member.
Then we dove into the 2014 Motor City Comic Con, roller derby, the Assemble Detroit event tomorrow night and a whole bunch more.
Lots of fun this time around, as well as some great information, so let’s go ahead and dive in…
Our first segment usually kicks off with introductions, some light banter, and then a back and forth banter about news items that have caught our eye over the previous week, but, well, this time there was a rant to be handled right at the top of the show, and so away we went.
We got a call from Michael Goldman of Motor City Comic Con, and so we dove on in with what to expect from this year’s event, and the changes that have been made since last year’s fairly well publicized issues with traffic and parking. Good to hear they’ve got things tuned up a bit this year, and we’re really looking forward to being on-site May 16-18 to check everything out.
The big guest this year is William Shatner, and you can read their press release here: Motor City Comic Con 2014_William Shatner_Press Release

In our third segment, we chatted with the Assemble Detroit guys, and their event tomorrow…well, “tonight” now, I suppose.
They’re trying to do some very cool things with getting solid discussions going on downtown, and so if you’ve got the chance, you should absolutely get over to the DSO and check them out.

Holes the size of a pizza? A mulligan on every hole? Sure, golf is hard…but do we really need to dumb it down? http://www.nytimes.com/2014/
