Moser's very own Samantha Parrish joins us this week to talk about working in IT as a non-IT person. From not faking it until you make it, to recognizing the role everyone has on a given team, to coding languages, building platforms, and so many acronyms it looks like an industrial accident at an alphabet soup factory, she'll tell us how she found her way and her place at Moser Consulting.
Moser's Director of Data, Tim Mack, joins us this week to talk about career transition. Many people working in the IT space don't start there and Tim is one of them. We really enjoyed hearing about how his path took him from a job with the National Forestry Service in Idaho to working at Moser Consulting. We think you will too!
Caitlin Karvasky, Senior Business Development Manager at Moser, joins us this week, along with MedPro CIO Brian Gray. They're here to talk to us about vendor/client relationships and how building trust through long-term partnerships pays dividends for everyone involved.
Matt Bennett, VP of Application Services at Moser, explains what progressive web apps are, how they are built, and the advantages of using them over a native application.
Today's episode is a special one as we have Craig Lippincott from the Indiana Sports Corp, and he's here to talk to us about the Indy Sports Challenge, an event that brings Indiana's companies together in the spirit of sports while also helping companies embrace company culture. We also have Moser's Director of Office Managment, Khemary Carter, who joins us to speak about why Moser participates in the Corporate Challenge.

We're on location at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to follow up with this season's Episode 4 guest, race car driver Matty Graham.

This week we are joined by Matty Graham and Joshua Ward.

Matty ended the regular season fourth in the standings, before sealing the series Winter Championship with three wins out of eight races.  Joshua Ward is an experienced leader and innovator across a variety of technology industries including Fintech, Motorsport, Cryptocurrency, Construction, Biotech and Media.

This week we're joined by Moser's Director of Marketing, Malinda Lowder. We'll be talking about living with intent and purpose, what it takes to do that, how to do things with intent, and how technology factors into all of this.

Season 4 kicks off in grand style as we talk with Stefanie Krevins, owner of Stefanie Krevins & Company, an organization that provides change management coaching and executive coaching. Our topic today is The Peter Principle, a management concept which points out the shortcomings of how people are promoted within organizations, stating that workers are promoted to their level of incompetence.She works with CEOs, small business owners, C-suite leaders, and mid-level managers through small business coaching, team training, workshops, and speaking. Stefanie is also the host of the Hot Mess Hotline podcast, featuring conversations about hot messes that leaders have had to clean up. They tell their stories for all to hear and discuss the valuable lessons learned from those hot messes. 
It's end-of-season clips time again, our favorite part of the year. Host Angel Leon and Producer Brian take a spin through our third season, pulling out some of our favorites. Looking back at the time we spend with our guests always brings a smile to our faces. And if you hear something that you like, please remember to go back and check out the full episode featuring that guest. There's plenty more goodness where these clips came from. (To borrow an old mining adage, you can follow these nuggets back to the mother lode.) Thank you for joining us this season. We hope you have a terrific summer and we'll see you back here in late July or early August for Season 4 of ASCII Anything.
