Awesome Chat: Mike Pound

Mike Pound, affectionately known to our crew as Uncle Crappy, stopped by to check out the studio since we shuffled things around not so long ago.  Since he stopped by early, we snagged a chat about what he’s doing online these days.  Starting with the origin of his online moniker, we moved on to his work with Beer Me, an online college football project with Carla Swank, and some general information about what it’s like working for a traditional media company in a new media world.
