Welcome to Cold Oatmeal, a production of Resch Strategies, concocted from the creative think tank that is 230 N. Washington Square, Suite 200. With topics ranging from the latest news headlines and future crisis communications case studies to what we had for dinner last night and what’s happening across Michigan and the nation.
We know what you’re thinking, though. The name. What’s cold oatmeal have to do with a PR podcast? It’s explained in our pilot episode, but it’s pretty simple. Like the popular breakfast of one our colleagues, it’s “good for us, it’s fun, it’s got some funny elements to it and it was one of the first things that really got us all talking as an office.”
Get to know the people behind the voices you’ll hear from on our website and feel free to drop us a line with any comments, questions or suggestions.
How many “hits” must one have in order to compile a “Greatest Hits” album? Today, we push this existential question to its limits.
Before our summer furlough, we listen back to our favorite moments with some of our favorite guests from season two.
You know those times when you have to get up super early, and you toss and turn afraid you’re going to sleep through your alarm? Now, imagine “super early” actually means 1:30 a.m., and you have to do it every day, and after you do it you have to go on LIVE TV for four hours.
That’s the life of today’s podcast guest, Ann Marie LaFlamme.
It’s the “Nikki Summit,” and on the agenda are social media strategies and tips, John Beilein, online pet peeves, broccoli, and news embargoes.
It’s time to spin the wheel, draw a card, and hit the buzzer.
Today, Matt Ottinger is our guest on the podcast. For 29 years, Matt hosted “QuizBusters” on PBS. He’s also a game show expert and a former contestant.
We love stories about people who take a chance and start something cool. We especially love stories about people who take a chance, start something cool and become the very best in the country at doing it.
That’s Linda Hundt’s story, creator of the Sweetie-licous bakery and winner of 19 National Pie Championships.
If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a million times: running the Cold Oatmeal podcast is just like running the programing for Michigan’s biggest public radio station, and today we prove it!
With us is Zoe Clark, program director for Michigan Radio.
