    What Is That?

    Or, better said, what is THAT? Today, we tackle a topic that's been tying people in knots for centuries, and instead of untying it or tying a new knot, we decide to just cut the rope at the part that matters most to us in our work, and get on with creating something that matters already.

Actionable, insightful and well produced

Really enjoying this! A fantastic example of actionable/high-value content, simple structure and writing, and a great balance of informal, relatable voices. I’d recommend it to any marketer or brand thinker out there!

A must-listen

As someone who has an insatiable appetite for learning and who is often not content with the conventional, thank you Jay, I find this podcast quite filling (in keeping with appetite analogy:). Filling, in that it answers so many questions I have about what is next in exploring how I can reach people and have an impact as well as sparking emotions in the style, pace and tone of the storytelling. If what Jay is doing is for you - showing you how others and you can be the exception and not be just like everyone else, then give this a listen.
