Episode 2: From the Way it Sounds, You’ll Want to Catch This



Join The Crew Host Corey Moss, Justin Watts, Deron Pinchback and Megan Powers– as they welcome their guests:

Chuck Espinoza – Staff Instructor at InfoComm International
Paul Zielie – Manager, Enterprise Solutions at HARMAN International
Timo Kaupila – CEO at Catchbox

In an extended show (of course you want to hear every word said by the two industry gurus on the podcast) The Crew begins with the usual intro and the industry shout-outs – listen in to find out who got them.

If we were to tell you that you were listening to two shows in one would you believe it? Well, believe it as in the first half the Crew talks with the guests about their goings-on and whereabouts (as in where in the world is Paul Zielie?), along with some excellent discussion with Timo Kaupila about the Catchbox, a throwable wireless microphone system for conferences, events and education which is also customizable as you will hear. Timo is truly a standout executive as he comes to us all the way from Finland in the early hours (3:30 AM to be exact) – now that’s dedication!

The “Mad Sound Guy” Chuck Espinoza is back in a big way, and for those who know Chuck you’ll know what we mean. There is not a greater person to have on a podcast if you want to hear the scoop about industry education and instruction, along with the great humor one individual can bring. And we mean – none. Also a word of advice, when you attend Paul’s industry classes no talking. You’ll hear why.

To hear all of this, and more – sit back, plug in, grab the cold one of your choosing and live…

Episode 1: Living The Life AV



Join the Crew of The AV Life – Corey Moss, Justin Watts and Deron Pinchback – as they bring you a new podcast show for the AV world and all the exceptional people in it.

On this first show, they welcome their guests:

Bill Nattress – Director of Channel Strategy–Paging at Biamp
Penny Sitler – Marketing Manager at Draper Inc.
Stacy Kringlen – Customer Service/Inside Sales Manager at Vaddio
Alesia Hendley (on a call-in) – AV Tech/Operator/The Berry Center at Cypress Fairbanks ISD in Houston, TX

New show, new energy – with three outstanding guests who many know, as well as the high-profile companies they work for. Two of the guests work for companies that have been in the industry for four decades or more (one celebrating a recent anniversary), and in fact one of them works for a company that has been around since a team many know and love won their first World Series. A call-in from Alesia Hendley who tells us about her pivot into the AV industry from her previous career and what it means to her, including some of the people who have become influential in her new career.

Corey announces two job openings from Tier PM, one of the premier AV/IT recruiting companies – a public service for those seeking employment in the industry. In the second half, we talk about the AV life with Bill, Penny and Stacy – their own, their company’s and more. An excellent discussion you’ll want to check out.

So sit back, plug in – and enjoy the show as we live…
