On May 10, 2013, Episode zero of Gem City Podcast was released. Eric Ruiz created something that has given two mayors of Dayton uncensored access to the public, countless artists, festivals, businesses, and various other people a voice in Dayton.

Eric Ruiz created something beautiful and in the Fall of 2015 he walked away to pursue travel and find himself. You can follow his adventures on this site through his blog; Trail & Error. This podcast is his story of those two plus years running the Gem City Podcast.

He will be missed, but the podcast continues on. Episode 200 is a big deal amongst podcrafters. It’s tough to maintain doing a podcast with your own time without any compensation. The amount of hours and money many podcasters spend will never be made back.

This is uncensored media. At times NSFW, but an honest conversation. We need this type of media in our fast food, microwave world. Thanks to Eric for getting the ball rolling. This thing is not stopping anytime soon and 2016 is going to rock.

Big thanks to our new sponsor, Yellow Cab Tavern.
