Jonathan Brewer (@HouseofBrew) or perhaps better known as "Brew" is Director of Awesome at BTC Revolutions. If you're an avid Why I Social listener you may recognize his name as he made a brief appearance on this year's Community Manager Appreciation Day edition of the podcast. That's because Brew is a core member #CMGRHangout which takes place every Friday. 

Brew's journey is certainly a unique one and he offers a unique perspective on the changes (or lack there of?) that have taken place in the internet and technology industry. Take the journey this week as I converse with Johnathan on this and more. 

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

  • His discovery of "the internet"
  • How communication and the internet have changed (or not changed)
  • His journey into the social media/community focused workspace

Tracy Soren and Jessie Jolles (@SorenandJolles) are a comdy duo currently living in New York City. Their story together begins at a Upright Citizens Brigade improv class and has grown into a friendship which has been compared to that of Broad Street. 

Their web series, Dibs, about the importance of friendship during life's little moments. They've also been described as NYC's Top 10 Up-And-Coming Comedians and 10 Rising Improv Stars That Deserve Their Own TV Show. 

Naturally, I was also excited to learn they recently launched a podcast as well

This Week on Why I Social, Tracy, Jessie and I discuss:

  • The story of how they met 
  • What made them each interested in comedy
  • How YouTube and Social Media have impacted their comedic careers

Andrew Seaman (@AndrewmSeaman) is Senior Medical Journalist at Thomson Reuters. You may have seen his articles in other papers such as USA Today and Politico. In addition to his work at Thomson Reuters - Andrew is also Ethics Committee Chair for the Society of Professional Journalists. 

This episode is also unique in the fact that I've had the absolute pleasure of being a part of Andrew's journey - from our days at Best Buy - to Wilkes University where I worked and he attended school. It's been tremendous to see his journey and an even bigger joy to discuss it on Why I Social. 

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

  • How Andrew became interested in journalism
  • The difference between his experiences in New York and Washington D.C
