ITP E. 27 Fiercely Independent, Wholly Unexpected w/ the Google Arts and Culture team
This week, the gang welcomes the pod's first non-Milwaukeeans - Simon Delacroix and Surya Tubach - from a small mom and pop technology company called Google, to talk about the just launched Milwaukee city page on Google Arts and Culture.
