Episode 18 – Groove U



Dwight Heckelman saw a problem. Colleges and universities were not preparing students how to be successful in the music business. Sure, they taught you how to play an instrument, or how to teach, but no one was teaching how to survive and thrive in the ever-changing music business.

That’s why he started Groove U, an accredited music program to prepare students for the real music business. Students graduate with not only the skills, but the real-world experience and contacts to be successful. Dwight spent the morning telling us his fascinating story, and how Groove U prepares the next generation of music entrepreneurs

Episode 16 – Society for Creative Anachronism



Today we get to explore one of Robert’s hobbies, and invite the King of Midrealm, Don Strubler over for a discussion.  The Society for Creative Anachronism is a group of historical reenactors focused roughly on the medieval period.  But, unlike most clubs who vote on their leader, the SCA chooses theirs by trial by combat.  Don talks to us about his 30 year history with the club, what it means to him, and how you could get involved.

Episode 14 – Pursuit



Nate DeMars started his clothier company with a simple mission. Provide men with a tailored suit, at a reasonable price, so they can stand out from the crowd. To test this, he formed a pop-up store that grew into a mobile offering, and finally his new storefront in the Short North.

He joined us in the shed to discuss Pursuit, it’s origin story, where he came from, and why this form of high-touch retail is so important.
