After our SMB here in the twin towns of Minneapolis & St. Paul, a few of the local social media podcasters had a chance to talk about the social media scene here in MSP, and some thoughts on social media as well.

Quickly, the discussion turned into how a tech fest with no less than 4 mobile recording devices appearing to capture the conversation.  So enjoy this impromptu podcast recorded live on historic Main Street Minneapolis on the shores of the Mississippi River.

In this converstation are Graeme Thickins, Steve Borsch, Bryan Person, Rick Mahn, Albert Maruggi, Tim Elliot, Brad Bellaver and Phil Wilson.  You can also see a QIK video of part of the conversation here:

Yep, you heard right, this is the inaugural SMBMSP podcast. We'll be working on the format and content for the next event, but this first one was as much to see how it'd work as it was for fun. Many, many thanks to Brad Bellaver for his patience and diligence in creating this podcast. He's a true pro.


Iv'e been producing and djing for a good few years now , my favourite styles of music are all things House, Garage and Drum and Bass. Over the years i've been lucky enough to get a few releases out there and had the chance to remix some really good tracks , feel free to check out my stuff , i'm frequently adding new tracks , and make tracks that I can available for download. I'm always interested in working on new tracks and if I like a track will often take it on to be remixed ... Best way to get hold of me is via facebook ( Don't be shy to get in touch , always love to hear from people , even if its to just comment on the tracks :)
