  1. Love the concept of your “show”!

    A few thoughts/comments.

    Your group consists of all fairly young people. How does Facebook and Twitter relate to the older generation, or does it? For instance, I market for SuperMax Tools, and we are just “getting into” the social media portion of things. But, our target audience isn’t as Social-media savvy as other target audiences. How, then, do you still get them to Facebook and Twitter?

    Please clairy the “Sponsored Story” concept. It was a bit difficult to grasp.

    Finally, I think the whole beer theme is fun, but some people might take offense. Don’t know if that bothers you; I just thought I’d mention it. As for me, I’m going out to buy the beer you guys recommended!
