Episode 182: Alocito, Cason Beverages, 5ive Gears Show

A really, really great time was had by all during episode 182 of our weekly live podcast from the Podcast Detroit studios!  It seems like we say that all of the time, but it was especially true this time around.  From an app designed to streamline your dining process to save you all kinds of time to a new sparkling water on the market that’s got an amazing taste (with or without adding vodka to it…) to another show on our network keeping you up to speed on the latest in the local Detroit music scene that you probably ought to be listening to…
