We encourage you to send your questions in when you think of them, then if you are at the *live* recording you will get priority, but if you miss the show you still might get your question answered. Contact us.

::: Update :::
The show is about to go *Live* at five past the hour. One note, we have had the Blue Angels buzzing where Jonathan is all day, and could make the show interesting. This was taken earlier today:

Blue Angle in Middle TN

plans go boom | March 31, 2008

Part of the plan for today was to write up notes from the CIA Summit and email people we meet there.

Instead we are sitting here working on some upgrades to the great little piece of software that runs this and millions of sites across the world.

If something looks wacky here today, it is due to the upgrade process.

A few pages, like the insider pages, are not working properly now. We should have this fixed in a day or two.

Call for People | February 14, 2008

We are looking for additional people to be involved with this venture. The biggest area is people to fill the role of co-host. The plan is to continue to have Artist Insider be two co-hosts interviewing an Insider.

To help with busy schedules we are looking for a few individuals who can fill that role and we will schedule two at a time. This is an independent contractor position with profit sharing. Being near Nashville, TN is a plus, but the real requirements include a desire to learn, an interest in studying Talent Based Industries, and an ability to interview people. Read more
