This month’s featured Presenters and Projects:

Podcast Brunch Club | Adela Mizrahi

Adela Mizrachi is the founder of Podcast Brunch Club (PBC). PBC is like book club, but for podcasts and is comprised of a global community of engaged podcast listeners. Every month PBC selects a theme and curates a list of three to five podcast episodes that apply to that theme. PBC then brings people together in person to discuss the monthly listening list.

Podcast Brunch Club aims to address two major pain points: podcast listening is a solitary experience and person-to-person interactions have become more difficult as technology has pervaded everyday life. That’s why conversation and dialog are at the heart of the Podcast Brunch Club. There are now chapters in over twenty-five cities across four continents. While the core of PBC centers around the in-person chapter meetings, there are also opportunities to continue the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.

DineHero – Never eat alone. | Thet Soe

DineHero starting in the dining room. Chicago-based developer Thet Soe was eating alone on a business trip and was inspired with if he could get to know one or two persons with every meal, his network would grow in the week of his business trip.

With a team of Chicago-based developers Thet co-founded DineHero, the network app connecting professionals over a meal. Think of DineHero as ‘face-to-face’ LinkedIn meets Yelp. “Before DineHero, there was no app that helped people turn a regular meal into a networking opportunity in a restaurant or a company cafeteria.”

Networking is often like looking for a needle in a haystack. DineHero is for companies, associations and professionals. Browse and join events on an interactive map. Everyone eats every day, DineHero turns your meal into a networking opportunity.

Internal Archives | Binta Diallo

The founder of Internal Archives, Binta Diallo, a first generation millennial is compassionate towards others yet she wasn’t as empathetic towards herself. Years of asking questions, “Who am I, beyond my skin color,” and negative self talk led her down a rocky journey to self-love and discovery. Along her journey, she came across many people also uncomfortable being themselves.

Binta describes Internal Archives as the hidden contents of a person’s cultural identity. The constant battle to adhere to societal norms, and remain true to who we are, and the memories stored that mold each of us into the people we are today. Internal Archives mission is to serve as a resource platform to empower millennials of color and to embrace what makes them unique.

Internal Archives also wants its readers to become comfortable with their identities and to promote self love, cultural awareness, and personal professional development. Within its short existence Internal Archives has been able to inspire people around the world.


Moderator:  Scott Winterroth, co-founder of  ContentAcademy.com
