While lots of people have the day off today, we’re getting ready for the next broadcast of our weekly live podcast tonight at 9pm, and we’re joined by Ashley Gold of Hardcore Pawn, Pawn Chick Shopping and Pawn Chick Radio…yep, it sounds like she’s about as busy as we are with multiple projects rolling at the same time, so listen live tonight to hear all about it. We’ve also got some blog entries for you to read, our casual networking event this Thursday down at Firebird Tavern…
Our first casual networking event of 2016 will take place this 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’re joined by Ashley Gold tonight, who many of you know from the reality show series Hardcore Pawn based out of her family’s pawn shop, but these days she’s bursting out from the shadows of her cable TRUtv Hardcore Pawn castmates. The national reality star has a new lease on life with a new look, she’s 50 pounds lighter, and a new brand all her own with the launch of pawnchickshopping.com. She’s also a fellow podcaster with Pawn Chick Radio, and so we’ve definitely got some things to talk about tonight.
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!
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: http://www.podcastdetroit.com/how-to-listen/ 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 like Pwned Radio (which you gamers may remember from their days on 97.1), Detroit Sports Rag, Forward Down the Field with Theo Spight and more.
You can catch our last two episodes with some old friends one week and Comcast and a new fan expo out in Niagara Falls the next, along with all of our other episodes on our Show Archives page: http://www.itinthed.com/listen/it-in-the-d-show-archives/
It’s been a couple of weeks since our last email blast, so there are plenty of blog entries to catch up on as well…
