 KoPoint News, EP 010 - The Soundboard News | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 29:53

The KoPoint News experiment continues. This week KoPointe News co-hosts Marc Lizoain and Dan Patterson are joined from Washington, D.C. by Talk Radio News congressional correspondent Justin Duckham, and from Boston Bold Edition Editor Clarence Smith. This week we launched our live implimentation of a soundboard. The soundboard is a traditional piece of radio gear and is the software metaphor for traditional Carts. The soundboard helps us fire off sound effects, beds, and sweepers.  While there were a few audible bugs in this episode we're pretty confident that our new tool will help tighten up each KoPoint show over time. Thanks for bearing with us!

 Beer Diplomacy, EP 100 - My Favorite White Woman Of Color | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 54:32

Originally recorded: May 14, 2012 at KoPoint Studios in NYC This is what happens when you fill a small studio with too many smart and funny people, and give them alcohol.  Magic happens!  This was the first time we've ever had so many people in the KoPoint Studio, and didn't know what to expect, or what we'd be left with after we were done.  It was a fitting bracket to 100 episodes, in that the first episode went very much the same way.  We had no idea what we were doing or what we'd be left with when we were done.  The takeaway is, we surely had a fun time with a group of smart and entertaining guests.  Pardon the shoddy at times audio quality, and the abrupt cuts.  Once again, putting 13 drinking people in a small studio causes problems. The benefit?  There are a countless number of priceless laughs to be had throughout the episode.  Without further ado, here's the amazing, awe-inspiring lineup for SHOW FREAKING 100! Your host: Stuart Tracte Engineered by: Dan Patterson Topics for episode 100 can be found at: http://bit.ly/BD100Links Guests: Jim Louderback Harrison Greenbaum Hagan Blount Patrice Callender  Baratunde Thurston Ron J Williams Peter Shankman Bryan Thatcher JanMichael Guzman Travis Dover  Suzy Mae Howard Thank you to everyone who's ever been a part of making this show a reality, and anyone who's listened and enjoyed this little podcast that could. Thanks to Brian Brushwood, Justin Robert Young, & Mark Malkoff for sending their congratulatory messages. You three guys helped make this show possible, and your presence legitimized whatever the hell it is that I've been doing.  Thanks!

Full Episode: http://kpnt.co/KSKjRk The Report friends Facebook. Gina Smith of A New Domain and Dan Patterson of KoPoint examine the shockwaves emitted by the recent Facebook IPO. From Gina's reporting on  A New Domain: Not everyone blames Facebook, though. Should investors do better homework? “When I was researching a story I found that (Facebook) modified its filing to better reflect its weak position on mobile. As an investor, either you listen or you don’t,” commented my colleague, columnist and IT pro Dino Londis. I did a story on this at CNET’s Techrepublic. Read the full complaints below.
