Podcast #6_NoVacancy Podcast_This is Due April 30 by 8pm CST

This is due Thursday, April 30th by 8pm CST for the initial response .

No Vacancy has been broadcasting through Facebooklive almost daily since this Coronavirus moved into the hospitality space. Anthony Melchorri, star of HOTEL Impossible is typically one of the host. This broadcast, he was unable to attend, but they refer to him several times and wanted you to know who they are referring too. This is a longer podcast than I typically assign, but this one is very current and speaking with a few industry GM/owners and what has happened since COVID-19; they also speculate on how their business will bounce back. It is located inside of Facebook; I have provided the link (Links to an external site.). I have also found it at their website as well:
