When I (@CBarrows) first started the Why I Social podcast - I never expected to be a guest on my own show. As the story goes, around episode 20 or so - I started getting requests to here more about the show and why I decided to start it. I won't deny that it's always nice when people are interested - but I thought nothing of it. 

Nearly one year later this happens: A live blab - hosted by alum and friend, Vincenzo Landino (@VincenzoLandino) - where I'm a guest on my own show. It was a humbling experience as well as a valuable one - as it put me in the seat I've put more than 55+ alums previously. 

This Week on Why I Social, Vincenzo and I discuss: 

  • Starting Why I Social
  • How a handshake played a key role
  • My Five Favorites

Adam Dince (@AdamDince) is the Director of Earned Media at Deluxe Corporation and the co-founder of #Spoofchat. He brings over fourteen years of internet marketing experience to the podcast including everything from SEO, web development and social media. 

As I caught up with Adam this past week, he was just getting back from one of his speaking gigs at Minnesota Blog Con. Adam has lived in Arizona and New York prior to his move to settling in Minnesota. His experiences and strong network have continued to gain him opportunities and ultimately led to his current role at Deluxe Corporation. 

#Spoofchat is discussed in the last part of the podcast and is a weekly twitter chat mixing pop culture, humor, and social media into a unique blend of crazy fun.

This Week on Why I Social, Ali and I discuss: 

  • Moving from New York to Minnesota 
  • The creation of #Spoofchat
  • Why he believes in holistic digital marketing strategy

Lucy Rendler-Kaplan (@LUCYrk78) is a Senior Marketing Communications professional with over 17+ years of experience. She hails from the Chicago-metro area, is a fan of Chicago style pizza (yeah, we went there again) and you'll find her every week as a leader of #Contentchat. 

You may remember Lucy's name as she was one of the person's I met face-to-face during my #SocialRoadTrip with alum Joel Renner during our trip to Chicago in the summer. Like many of my guests - her appearance on the show is a long-time coming - and she's the ideal guest for the show as her accomplishments aren't illustrated by any sort of follower count. 

This Week on Why I Social, Ali and I discuss: 

  • Identifying your customers using social media
  • What is "hustle"?
  • The return of the NYC versus Chicago pizza debate
