Makers on Tap

You might want to check out Makers on Tap Episode 056 because not only was it recorded at Milwaukee Makerspace, but it was also recorded the night of our Maker Faire Party which happened on Saturday night after Maker Faire Milwaukee wrapped up. The space was filled with members and makers and guests having a good time and a few of them recorded things.

The episode has a brief talk with Caleb from MAKE, Eden (one of our members), Karen from The Bodgery and PPPRS, and more people! They also mention the space, and how *ahem* awesome it is, so that’s pretty cool.

(Fans of Makers on Tap might have also noticed Episode 055 has some mentions of the space, but Episode 056 is the meaty episode.)
