Meet The Bloggers Rolls On In April

with one comment

Just like a rolling stone, we are gathering no moss.  We have a lot planned for April, and May is shaping up to be another month chock full of a lot of different conversations as well.   But here is what we have going in April.  This week we are interviewing John Zayac. former Cleveland Councilman who now owns a Project Management company at Gypsy Beans and Baking Company on Wednesday and on Thursday we are back there to sit down with six to eight Max Hayes Seniors to talk about the State of the City Schools.  That evening we will be taking our six packs to Midtown Brews for a roundtable with RTA about The Euclid Corridor Project.  And next week, is DeFrag at Lorain CCC where we will be on Thursday, April 12 and April 13.  We round out the month with Nikki Gillota, the talented owner of Gypsy Beans and Baking Company and John Zitzner, founder of ePrep School.  Both are exciting personalities that give hope and vision to our fair city.

And if that isn’t enough we will be talking to the Ingenuity Festival folks about a site for Meet.The.Bloggers at the festival and we are also in talks with Arts Collinwood about having Bloggapalooza II during The Waterloo Arts Festival.

Meanwhile, we continue to support our friend Jeff Friedman in his ongoing quest to bring truth and action to the Global Warming issue that faces us all.  Jeff was chosen to act as one of the 1000 ambassadors by Al Gore to bring these issues to the communities of America on a grassroots level so that we become a part of the dialogue and we can drive public policy on these issues. Stay tuned for details of a community dialogue at Nightown sometime in the middle of the month.

Check our schedule out at and our website at and listen to our latest interview with Mike Roberts.  We have just added the transcript for Tim Ryan’s interview with us last August.  Both are worth a listen.
