Mophie In-Studio Tonight, Charity Event Recap, 2016 Events and More for 12/21/2015

Well, we’re counting down the final days of 2015, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a lot going on.

We’ve got a recap of our event from the 10th you should check out along with a bunch of other blog entries, we have every event for 2016 booked out and published, there are still two more episodes of our weekly live podcast broadcast including tonight’s with Mophie in-studio with us…and we’ve already busily booking some pretty cool guests for episodes in 2016, the usual mayhem and nonsense on our Facebook page and on Twitter, ongoing discussions in our LinkedIn group and more…

EventNewspaper_Jan2016Let’s get this party started with our events in 2016.

Our first casual networking event of 2016 will take place on Thursday, January 21st over at Firebird Tavern downtown.  We had a great event there last year, and we’re looking forward to kicking things off for 2016 there.

As always…no cover charges, no agendas, no speakers, no anything other than good, solid networking possibilities with some of the best and brightest folks in and around the information technology community here in metro Detroit.

We have all of our events already scheduled and published out for the whole year of 2016, so you have no excuses about not knowing when or where our events are.  Mark your calendars now.

We’ll be talking with, the makers of some incredibly cool cell phone cases and other accessories that you probably want to know about…

…and yeah, we’ve seen Star Wars, so we’ll probably be chatting about that a bit as well.

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_500x500Listen 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, because that’s where we’re focusing our efforts.  Plus, you can get some exposure to other great shows on our network.

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