For as long as I have been hosting My Take Radio and running RAGE Works, one of the questions I am asked often is what “toys” or tech I am using daily to run my brands. This got me thinking about what the other individuals I work with or have relationships with are using. So, we decided to create a new weekly feature to showcase those individuals and all the toys and tech they use. Toys and tech will vary from person to person of course (with actual toys sometimes showing up). We will be fleshing it out gradually and showcasing what our staff is using is as well in future installments.

Our first column features longtime MTR/RW affiliate and colleague Dani from Royal Flush Magazine. So let’s hear what Toys & Tech of the Trade Dani needs for work and play.
