Detroit Labs and Merit Network In Studio Tonight, Pink Slip Party Thursday, Blogs, Updates and More for 9/12/2016

We’re live tonight with our friends (and Pink Slip Party sponsors) Detroit Labs tonight, along with the folks from Merit Network for episode 162 of our weekly podcast live broadcast from Podcast Detroit.  We’ve got all sorts of topics to dive into with them both, as well as chatting about Thursday’s Pink Slip Party event, the usual round up of events and articles that have caught our eyes this past week and more.  And of course we’ve got our blogs, Facebook wall, and other nonsense to keep you amused while you’re waiting…

EventNewspaper_SepPSP2016Our Pink Slip Party event.

This Thursday, September 15th, we’ll be heading back to take over The Majestic for one of our Pink Slip Party events.

If you’re not familiar with these events and why they’re a little different from our monthly casual networking socials, then you should definitely read the FAQ we put together, but in a nutshell, they’re larger and more specifically geared towards helping people find jobs.  People still come to meet and expand their networks, but a lot more recruiters tend to show up for these.

Details for that event…and all of the others we do…can be found here on the site –, on our Facebook page –, or in our Meetup group –

itinthednewspaper09122016Of course we’ll be talking about that tonight during episode 162 of our podcast’s weekly live broadcast from Podcast Detroit.

We’ll also be talking about everything that Detroit Labs has going on these days, from their apprentice program to the great work that they do in the mobile app dev space, as well as what Merit Network’s been doing with helping getting people educated and trained in the IT world for bigger and better things moving forward.

PD_mic_Twitter_500x500…as always, you should listen live to hear it all…and as we keep telling you, you’d do well to grab the Podcast Detroit app for Android or iOS and listen that way.  You can find those apps here:  The app has everything from the ability to listen live to all three studios, the back catalog of episodes from all 60+ shows on the network, a channel that plays nothing but live music from local bands 24/7 and more.

The mics go live starting at 9pm, and we hope you join us.
