BIG NEWS!

shrimptanklogo

We are pleased to announce that The Shrimp Tank is going to be joining the iHeart radio network in January.

RSVP for our FREE Launch Party on January 16th at Ocean5 in Gig Harbor! Space is limited so reserve your spot today!

The iHeart radio network is the #1 commercial podcaster in the United States receiving more than 147,000,000 monthly downloads on its network.  Although most famous for its overall radio and music content, the podcasting platform is the fastest growing segment of iHeart’s business.

We will be combining our podcasts into one simple, easy to click format so we can leverage all of the amazing work we have done in our respective cities.  In addition, iHeart will be serving up small banner ads in our cities for those that listen to iHeart that will be directly driving them to your podcast.  This is really exciting news to help increase our presence both in the Greater Puget Sound area but also nationally.

iHeart shared with us that over 2/3rd’s of people who listen to podcasts on their network listen to 3 or more every week, so we will be prominently featured in the business and entrepreneur sections on their podcast format.

Here’s OUR big news to go along with that….

We are holding a Seattle Shrimp Tank Podcast Launch Party on January 16th at Ocean5 in Gig Harbor. The party will run from 4:40 to 7:00 pm. This will be our time to celebrate with you and share exciting ideas.

The party is FREE and open to all our community. Space will be limited, so we ask that you RSVP and reserve your spot. If you have multiple people coming, we ask that each person register individually. Once registered, you will receive more information about the event. Click below to today and share the good news!

Shrimp Tank Podcast with Guest Dr. Peter Lehmann

Check out our latest podcast with our guest, Dr. Peter Lehmann. We had a fascinating conversation on membership based medicine and the financial and emotional values the model provides. I’m a member of Vintage Direct Primary Care and I can say without question, it’s been the best experience we’ve had with a clinic. To learn more, both watch this brief video and then go listen to the entire podcast.

Shrimp Tank Podcast with Erin Jones

Our latest Shrimp Tank podcast episode featured our guest, Erin Jones.

Erin Jones has been involved in and around schools for the past 26 years. She has taught in a variety of environments, from predominantly Black to predominantly White to some of the most diverse communities in the nation. Erin received an award as the Most Innovative Foreign Language Teacher in 2007, while working at Stewart Middle School in Tacoma and was the Washington State Milken Educator of the Year in 2008, while teaching at Rogers High School in Spokane. She received recognition at the White House in March of 2013 as a “Champion of Change” and was Washington State PTA’s “Outstanding Educator” in 2015.

After serving as a classroom teacher and instructional coach, Erin worked as an executive for two State Superintendents. Erin left the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction 5 years ago to work in college-access at the school district level. She left her job to run as a candidate for State Superintendent and was the first Black woman to run for any state office in Washington state, a race she lost by a mere 1%. Erin has given TED Talks which can be found on YouTube.  A few samples of her TED Talks are “Passion for Change” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQ7xY60a6z4 and “Be A Bridge” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFc9axy2ktQ.

Erin has two children in college, one who works full-time and plays rugby, and a husband, James, who is a teacher in North Thurston School District.
