This is the place!!!!!!!!

I love the This is the Place podcast. It is a little crazy at times (one of the things that makes it great) and sometimes you can learn about some interesting tech or Utah news! Keep up the good work Chris and Meg!

chupppppp ,

It’s good.

I am a true This Is The Placer.

Listen to this for a good time, not for a whole lot of learning. You’ll stay relatively up-to-date on happenings in Utah’s tech scene, but you mostly just laugh at Meg and Chris.
