My Visit to The Todd Shapiro Show's SiriusXM Studio

My Visit to The Todd Shapiro Show's SiriusXM StudioI biked the Martin Goodman Trail this morning and paid my first visit to The Todd Shapiro Show's SiriusXM studio in Liberty Village. I'd share the clip from my appearance, but SiriusXM wants Todd to wait 24 hours before sharing audio, so I'll post it tomorrow.

A little east of Dufferin on Liberty Street, I came upon this brick building at 135.

I took my bike on the elevator and made my way to the 3rd floor. Most of this floor belongs to Hockey Night in Canada folk.

I arrived at about 8:50am and Todd was in his studio prepping. I took this shot through the glass.

Todd runs a slick and professional show. In addition to a board op and co-hosts, there was an actual house band. They performed a very nice rendition of Elton John's Tiny Dancer while I was there.

I knew this was a real studio because there was lots of stuff like this everywhere. I don't have this in my home studio.

I was there with Pete from coreFusion and we were letting people know we help people podcast. If you want a podcast, contact me and we'll chat about it.
