ChannelPro Weekly Podcast: Episode #188 - The Flour Layer
Who needs icing in the middle of their cake when they can enjoy a thick layer of raw baking flour instead? Actually, don’t answer that. Just sit back and listen as Matt, Rich, and consultant Ronnie Parisella, mull over Gradient MSP’s new “data hygiene” product, and other news from Axcient and Augmentt.
Then stick around for an interesting conversation about the esports market with Chris Geiser and Bubba Gaeddert of D&H. Not saying much, we know, but you’ll find it way tastier than a flour-frost
ChannelPro Weekly Podcast: Episode #187 - In It for the Tee Times
There are lots of good reasons to be a channel pro. If golf isn’t one of yours, check out this week’s show, in which Matt, Rich, and guest Andrew Sampson, of SAAI, discuss forthcoming partner resources from D&H, rising hardware prices, a new solution from Extreme Networks, and more.
Then we discuss employee productivity monitoring and embarrassing favorite TV shows with Ian McChord of Zorus Inc.. And yes, that last topic is a bit odd, but par for the course with ChannelPro Weekly, wouldn’t you say?
ChannelPro Weekly Podcast: Episode #186 - Family Fisticuffs
Matt flies solo with guest host Manuel Palachuk, business coach and author, who somehow manages to turn the show into a drinking game. Matt and Manuel discuss pros and cons of adding voice assistant control to your client's infrastructure, as well as strategic partnerships and incident response.

Then your hosts catch up with Darren Gottesmann of Ingram Micro for a look at the crazy year behind us and the “golden age” we may be entering now. Just be sure to duck if you see a fist headed your way.
ChannelPro Weekly Podcast: Episode #184 - Supersized Meal Deals
Hungry for IT insights? Good, because Matt, Rich, and guest Ro Kolakowski of 6th Street Consulting, have a heaping helping for you, spanning from D&H’s new esports/gaming unit to Intel’s outlook on the year ahead, BitTitan’s “data synch as a service” plans, and the characteristics that make great MSPs great.
Then they’re joined by SaaS Alerts CEO Jim Lippie for a tour of the cloud security landscape and a return visit to the thoughts about MSP consolidation that Lippie shared last year. Dig i
ChannelPro Weekly Podcast: Episode #183 - SCSI Wuzzy Was a Bear
Actually, SCSI is an interface. Not sure who this bear is. Neither are Matt, Rich, and guest Dave Seibert of IT Innovators. They do, however, have plenty to say about the change of channel chief at Microsoft, the latest firewalls from Sophos, the pending SYNNEX/Tech Data merger, and work-from-home security stacks. Two of your hosts go on to interview Joe Contreras of Epson America, who wasn’t fuzzy when it came to describing the printer market before, during, and after COVID-19, was he?
