Date Night in the D Podcast Episode 000: Introduction

posted in: Podcast | 0

When I found out we were moving to Michigan, I instantly started researching Detroit, Ann Arbor, and many cities in between. As diverse as this area is, it was hard to find some of the information I was searching for. So, my husband, Orienthus, and I decided to start a podcast focused on local date night ideas, restaurant reviews, and some general relationship advice.

Our first episode is an introduction to us, how we got here, and what you can expect from our podcast. (Make sure to listen all the way to the end to find out what restaurant Orienthus hates with the fire of a thousand suns!)
