Yeah, I know it’s Sunday. I’ll make it up to you guys with an extra post this week.
Anyway, here is what’s been going on with me this week:
- App I downloaded — Periscope.
I’m a little late to the Periscope party. I’ve been following the battle of Meerkat vs. Periscope since SXSW, but Periscope didn’t make their Android app until 2 months after its original launch on iOS.
(And here come all my iOS friends telling me another reason why I shouldn’t have switched to Android.)
Anyway, would anyone watch? What should I talk about? Let me know in the comments!
- Podcast I’m listening to — StartUp by Gimlet Media.
From Fast Company’s “World’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies of 2015 In Media”
Podcasting has undergone an explosion of quality and visibility in the past year, and newcomer Gimlet Media is neither the largest nor best-known producer of that content—but it has emerged as the podcast revolution’s spokesman. That’s largely due to its origins: Alex Blumberg (formerly of This American Life and Planet Money) launched a podcast, called Startup, to chronicle his efforts to launch his own podcasting network (which eventually became Gimlet). It became some of the most insightful, human business reporting of 2014.
- YouTube video that had me laughing out loud —
- Something I need your help with — Trip planning
I’m planning a trip with one of my teammates to Europe during the offseason. Specifically, we’re heading to Scandinavia. Any of my readers have recommendations on the best places to visit?
- What’s been going on —
After we got back from Hickory, NC, I was able to enjoy an off day hanging out by the pool before heading over to Mellow Mushroom for Trivia Night. If you’re wondering, I think my teammates and I finished in last place, but we had a great time.
We’ve been on a five-game win streak and finish off this homestand with a four game series against the Delmarva Shorebirds. After that, we have another day off — I know, we’re getting spoiled in July — then we’re back on the road to Rome, GA.
