I decided to do a SXSW Review for my podcast listeners. I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the 2016 SXSW. But, after hearing all of the media coverage on the event, I thought someone should tell everyone about what really happens at SXSW. So listen to my podcast and for specifics on what each part of the festival represents, please see the paragraphs below.
