OTR – Ep 3 – Ken Takes A Chance On Nick

Nick Hotel is a massive resort. With 24 acres, 777 suites and half a million guest per year this resort sits in its own category.

We were recently invited to come and stay at Nick Hotel. While on our mini-staycation we had a party in the room with a few other bloggers and recorded a special segment for Orlando Tourism Report.  Shelly from On the Go in the MCO and Teresa from Making It All Work plus CFLTop5’s Jen Vargas join Kyle and Ken for an in-depth discussion.

Then after our stay Ken and Kyle are joined by the rest of the OTR crew for some final thoughts on the hotel.

OTR – SideChat 1 – To Go Where No Ride Has Gone Before

With any conversation that features numerous people sometimes parts of the conversation don’t make the final cut for the show. Instead of forever losing those (hopefully) interesting tangents we decided to post smaller, bite size podcasts to keep you going between our larger episodes.  Here is our first one.  We wanted to call it random tangents but we also wanted to have at least a few of you listen to it so instead we went with the name SideChat.  Hope you enjoy.
