Omni Talk’s 3/9/18 podcasts are live for your listening pleasure!

Just in time for your Friday lunch hour — Omni Talk’s Fast Five and After the Five podcasts are live for your listening pleasure.

This week the Fast Five podcast covers the Kohl’s and Aldi partnership, Best Buy, Ikea, voice recognition, reports on the housing industry, and closes with a salute to the founder of Tower Records as well.

Need even more? Want to go even deeper? Then be sure to tune into our After the Five podcast, where Toys ‘R’ Us also takes center stage, and Anne and Chris somehow even manage to break into song!

You can access both podcasts on iTunes here:

After the Five: Chris & Anne feel their age discussing Toys ‘R’ Us, learning Carter has 5 Alexa’s
