Podcast Every IT Pro Should Listen Too

Every morning before I start my drive to work I check for a new episode of MS Cloud IT Pro! If you are an IT Pro working with the Microsoft Strack this is an amazing podcast for you. Instead of reading all the blog updates from Microsoft I'm able to get all my updates from Ben and Scott. I've even been lucky enough to submit a question to them and had a whole podcast devoted to the topic. Just wanted to send a huge THANK YOU to Ben and Scott for helping me keep my skills and knowledge up to date.
