This week we have two great guests for you on the Edge of Indy!
First up on the podcast, we have Kate Franzman the owner of Bee Public. Kate wants to make Indianapolis a more bee-friendly city through education and community outreach. Since 2012, Kate has installed beehives all across Indianapolis with locations like the Monon Trail and Eskenazi Hospital. She also goes around to area schools to make classroom presentations on the importance of honeybees.
Second, we had a group of guests from Your Image Works and the Humane Society of Indianapolis. Twenty-Three chihuahuas were rescued from a hoarding situation in southern Indiana and brought to the Hannah Giere at Humane Society of Indianapolis for medical treatment and eventual adoption. Then, Courtney Bills and Shawn Quick-Raflik of Your Image Works saw the story and decided they wanted to help. They helped set up an online store and created fundraising campaign called #SayChis.
This week we have two great segments for The Edge of Indy!
First up, we have Kasia Kwiatkowsa, Membership Director of the Skyline Club, and Steve Jefferson, the Crimebeat Reporter for WTHR, join us in the studio to discuss an event they are having at the Skyline Club. On Friday, March 24th, the Skyline Club is hosting an event called "Meet the Media." This event plans to bring together entrepreneurs, journalists, and business professionals from the Indianapolis metro area to build relationships with the local media. Plus, they will hold a roundtable discussion with news reporters about how to pitch your content to them and discuss different ways of advertising.

Second, on the show, we talk to Tom Hanley of Nine13 Sports. Nine13 Sports is a non-profit organization that has developed the Kids Riding Bikes program that promotes health, wellness, and exercise by getting kids aged 5-18 on a stationary bike synced with their curriculum.
They partner with youth programs, schools, and other community organizations to bring in their program into their building and get kids excited about health and wellness.
Tom was also recently named to the Top 40 Under 40 by the Indianapolis Business Journal for work with Nine13 Sports.
