Because I know you can't get enough of my voice, I'm going on WXDU tonight just after 6 pm for the Fuqua Media, Entertainment, and Sports radio show to talk about DBR and play some music. They're also running a long interview with Ryan Craig, the Executive Director of Digital Strategy for Duke Athletics, after my segment. The show is 6-7 pm Mondays, but I'm only appearing this week. You should be able to find it on the WXDU site.
