Awesome Local Interviews by The Daily City

Since I have been thinking about recording some more episodes of the Florida Creatives Podcast, I was wondering if anyone else has been doing good local downloadable content. We have Radio Rickshaw and Front Porch Radio producing stuff, as well as CMF Public Media and the local WMFE and WUCF stations. Several years ago, Mark Baratelli of the popular Daily City blog produced a show called the Orlando Arts Podcast, but now he will just periodically post mp3 files and players on his site. This can make the content hard to find, so I have created a list.

We've been having some amazing events this summer, we hope to see you this week! Come get out of the heat and cool down with a tasty beverage, and snack on some of the delicious Crooked Bayou food, all while making new friends, catching up on news, and sharing your inspiration.

About FLCreatives Happy Hour

Whether you're a poet, an actor, a photographer, a producer, a marketer, a programmer, an entrepreneur or a combination of them all, you'll find some great conversation and new friends by attending, and coming back every month on the third Monday.

We also have a chapter in Melbourne that has been meeting for almost 2 years now with great success. If you'd like to see events like this in your town, feel free to start one! We now have Facebook Fan Pages for Orlando, Brevard, Tampa, South Florida, Southwest FL, Tallahassee and Gainesville.

Crooked Bayou has some of the best food in downtown Orlando, and drink specials for people who show up in the first hour. Monday is also when they run a special on their wings - check them out. Of course, the traditional "hot tots" and fried pickles are always a favorite.

P.S. Please bring a camera and snap some photos! You'll want to show your friends what it was like.

Likemind Orlando
Groups in 60+ other cities all over the world will be getting together for conversations with their community - sure, they may not have 2+ years of these events behind them, but we do.

More than 3 years ago, I heard about these two marketing guys / geeks from New York who had started an event they held on Friday mornings for coffee and conversation. The first few were just the two of them, but as they invited people and the word got out, it grew until it started getting on the radar all over the world. Now Likemind happens in scores of cities on every continent, and Orlando has been on that list almost since the beginning.

Coworking Tuesdays

Orlando Coworking Tuesday at Stardust
3 SupportersLog in to bookmark

Location

Stardust Video & Coffee
1842 E Winter Park Rd Look for the Laptops
Orlando, FL 32803

This event is essentially a Jelly. Bring your laptop, or your homework (or whatever you need to work on). Meet some new people, most of whom work from home. There will be a lunch hour and a collaborative spirit. It's a bit like going to a traditional office, but in a non-traditional setting, and few if any of the attendees work for the same company.

For a list of friendly places to work, check out (or add to) our Orlando Wifi Wiki.
