Episode 143 – RIP Mr. Garibaldi

On a special Saturday afternoon, your intrepid Co-Hosts Michael and Michael get together to talk about the latest in gaming, business and technology. We promised not to talk too much about Pokémon Go, but spend our time talking about engaging users. How do you engage your users? One of us also waxes poetically about the passing of Babylon 5’s security chief – Mr. Garibaldi.

Blog posts verses podcasts

Hi!  Your co-host and co-founder of GamesAtWork.Biz here – Michael R.  I know we’ve not been very good lately at posting shows and I wanted to just drop a note to say we are still around.  For some reason 2016 has been crazy for all of us at GamesAtWork.biz.  Crazy with Travel, Crazy with day jobs, and Crazy in our personal lives. One of the big questions I have is, as a listener to this podcast would you be interested if we posted some blog posts on those weeks when we are unable to record a show?  I know we’ve talked about posting reviews for games we are playing… but haven’t had time to get around to them, so I am not promising anything; however, would it be interesting if we get our co-hosts to post about events we are attending, games we are playing, and/or other interesting things that come to our minds.  Let us know what you think.  Hit us up on twitter, drop us an email, comment on this post, or rate us on the iTunes Store.  Thanks… now back to your regularly scheduled weekend.
