SnoutCast #84: "Re: Microsoft Intern Game 2011 (Part 1)"

Checking in with Greg Filpus, Kim Vlcek, Matt VanderKolk, and Nick Fang from MSIG-GC. (Apologies for the audio stutters in the first few minutes; Skype eventually got better.)

ALSO: Saturday's my birthday! I'd like to do another crazy stunt like last year's "37 Postcards" project, but am currently drawing a blank. Please feel free to e-mail me your ideas and suggestions. I'll decide before the end of the month and announce on the podcast! (To be honest, I'm mostly just curious whether anyone actually reads these show notes.)
