Episode 67: The one with ugly Christmas sweaters

This week on PrairieCast, we trotted out our favorite ugly Christmas sweaters. Rather, Andy brought his out, our guests Nathan T. Wright of Lava Row and Jordan Lampe of Dwolla donned very shiny Christmas vests and I went with the more conservative ugly Christmas sweater T-shirt.

We covered a lot of Dwolla news this week in the wake of their big feature announcement, Instant, last Thursday and the news that their co-founder Ben Milne had been named to Forbes’ “30 under 30” list for finance. Speaking of Forbes, we also discussed a post its website featured on burgeoning startup communities around the country as well as Naval Ravikant’s recent StartupBoy.com post on hiring and Sean Blanda of Technically Philly’s guest post on how to pitch your startup to the media.

Back to the sweaters, we have a competition going on who’s attire was the best. Check out the PrairieCast facebook page to log your vote: facebook.com/prairiecast.

Next week of PrairieCast: No show! We’re taking a holiday break. See you on January 3!

PrairieCast is a live podcast, recorded weekly, where a group of entrepreneurs gather to discuss current issues in technology and business that relate to the startup community on the Silicon Prairie and is hosted by Andy Brudtkuhl of 48Web and Geoff Wood of Silicon Prairie News.
