Getting Odd in October & Looking Towards The Holidays


Fall is officially upon us and Watershed Studio, Surge Bucket Media & Indy Media School have decided to pack up their recording gear and head out into the big city and mingle with our fellow citizens as part of the October Oddness 2010 Meetups/Tweetups.  We'll be podcasting, snapping photos & recording videos as we facilitate these events in conjunction with our gracious event hosts.  If you live in or around the Indianapolis area we'd love to see you and your family out at an event or two.

As we all know, this is the time of year when things start picking up in preparation for the Holiday season and year's end.  We're here to assist if you need anything at all, be it blog related, social media related, marketing related or anything in between, so please contact us and we'll be happy to help out in any manner.
