Orlando Water Hole is an internet talk show featuring the people in Central Florida who make Orlando a vibrant place to live, work and play. We share the stories of small business owners, artists, independent media creators, volunteers, non-profit leaders and community activists.

More importantly, we hope that through the telling of these stories, our listeners are inspired to give back and contribute to the Central Florida Community in their own, unique way. We also curate the #MYORLANDO hashtag highlighting Orlando’s community contributors.

Andi Perez, Yelp Orlando Community Manager, is probably one of Orlando’s biggest fans. We are out of breath just watching her instagram feed light up every waking hour and well into the night as she highlights some of Orlando’s best businesses while planning events for Yelpers all year long. After a year on the job we had to catch up with her to find out what inspires her about Orlando. We also talk:

  • Orlando’s greatest strengths and opportunities
  • Why taking alternate routes of transportation is important
  • Andi’s work with OrlandoSoup
  • Drama between Lake Eola and Lake Ivanhoe
  • Plus we answer a ton of listener questions.

    The Yellow Brick Road Foundation is a local Orlando non-profit dedicated to raising awareness of Congenital Heart Defects (CHD). When we first were approached by it’s President Trey Flynn about being a guest on the show, we were instantly struck after hearing the story about his son Holden’s birth from the film, “The Tin Man“. Since that life-changing moment, Trey and his wife have worked to establish a foundation to help families impacted by CHD.

    While in the hospital, Holden always grew fond of his custom-made red wagon that could take him around the hospital. Now, the Yellow Brick Road Foundation seeks to donate red wagons to hospitals around the country in honor of Holden. On todays show, Trey shares with us:

    [list style=”3″ underline=”0″]

  • How he and his wife decided to start the Yellow Brick Road Foundation
  • Surprising statistics about how common Congenital Heart Defects are
  • How to sponsor a wagon
  • And much more!
