Pubcast from The Brit and Yankee-Show 292-Forge Brewhouse
"Our Thanksgiving podcast reports on a trip to De Kalb IL for The Brit and his stand-in co-host John Karwoski, as they visit with head brewer John Sanderson at the Forge Brewhouse. With John is his wife Christen, who is also sales and marketing for the The Forge. We chat about why they moved from one location in Sycamore to downtown, and why they opened a second location in De Kalb. We also sample some of John's brews and he tells us what to look forward to on Black Friday. The Forge is definitely worth the nice drive out to the home of the Huskies!"

Cisco Systems & Urban Decay: Sandy Lerner
In the pre-Internet 1970's, Sandy Lerner was part of a loosely-knit group of programmers that was trying to get computers to talk to each other. Eventually, she and Len Bosack launched Cisco Systems, making the routing technology that helped forge the plumbing of the Internet. But when things turned sour at the company, she was forced to leave, giving her the chance to start something entirely new: an edgy line of cosmetics called Urban Decay. PLUS in our postscript "How You Built That," how Justin Li created a solution for staying cool and hydrated in the heat with IcePlate.
