M2 TechCast Featured Girls In STEM, Rocket Fiber, Matt Roush Announcement

FERNDALE – Another great episode of the M2 TechCast is on the books.

This week’s show featured Detroit tech entrepreneur Amanda Lewan and Cisco Systems Inc. engineer Nicole Johnson Scheffler, two of the three hosts of the Diva Tech Talk podcast, interviewing Christina Mathes, who runs client experience at Rocket Fiber, the new gigabit data provider now serving downtown and midtown Detroit.

The program also announced that M2 TechCast co-host Matt Roush would be leaving The Engineering Society of Detroit as of Feb. 5 to take a new job as director of public relations at Lawrence Technological University.

During the show, Roush interviewed his future boss, Bruce Annett, associate vice president for marketing and public affairs at LTU.

The two talked about Lawrence Tech’s history, current status as an award-winning engineering- and architecture-based university, its transition to a more traditional residential school, its K-12 outreach efforts to boost interest in STEM education and careers, and the recent opening of an LTU design and technology center in Midtown Detroit.

Roush also plans to continue this blog, www.techcentury.com, which will become a joint effort of ESD and LTU.

The hour-long M2 TechCast airs live at 3 p.m. Mondays at http://www.podcastdetroit.com/artist/mi-tech-cast/. It is hosted by Roush and Mike Brennan, owner of Michigan Technology News and its tech news podcast, www.mitechnews.com.

By Wednesdays, the M2 TechCast is also available on-demand for listening or download at that same link, or at iTunes or on www.soundcloud.com.
