WOW…Ignite Alabama Podcast is flat out awesome. Good production quality. Easy to listen. Very impressed Sheree. Keep bringing it.
Ignite Alabama is a great podcast highlighting startups across Alabama. The quality of this product is top notch and easy to listen to. I am very proud to see the number of entrepreneurs and companies being developed each year in a state that is not necessarily considered one with a large startup scene. The content of Ignite Alabama is inspiring and always engaging. Not only is Ignite Alabama interesting to listen too, but it is also a great utility for businessmen and entrepreneurs alike. I would highly recommend this product to anyone with an interest in business development.
Great for the state
I love hearing about the up and coming innovations in Alabama. Keep up the good work!
