Media today; Finding common ground; The Detroit region's future + more ft. Craig Fahle

Today's show is a conversation with Craig Fahle. His voice, if you’ve been following the Detroit conversation for awhile, should sound familiar to you. He’s a long-time radio host and now communications professional. His newest thing for your ears is the VVK podcast, an occasional show that does deep dives into important and interesting issues. Me and Craig have talked without microphones around a number of times, but this is the first time we’ve taken it on air. And there’s a wide-range we c...

#ThisIsWhatBlackDoctorsLookLike Hashtag Spreading On Social Media In Wake Of Airplane Incident

Earlier this week we talked about an incident where on a Delta flight from Detroit, according to Dr. Tamika Cross, she was denied the ability to help a fellow passenger in distress by the flight crew.

We’re glad someone else realizes something we’ve known for awhile: Michigan is indeed the best state in America. That’s the word from, the online purveyors of just about every list known to mankind.

More specifically, their contributions to America, so think inventions, food/drink, somewhat productive famous people, unique physical beauty,...

Detroit's Own PixelPrint Makes Social Media More Tangible And Fun

As much as we like bits and bytes, the Internet is, well, bits and bytes. Often, people long for the physical – something you can stick in a scrapbook, share with friends, or keep as a momento that you don’t have to plug in and charge up to enjoy. PixelPrint, a startup based in Detroit’s Grand Circus co-working space, is a deceptively simple proposition in that it’s basically the next generation of the photo booth. Founder Nev Muftari has been at it almost two years, and finding traction wit...
