Heartfelt, well-researched & powerful food for creative thought.

Ivan has created a really fun and insightful show. For me, the worlds of “content creation” and “content marketing” have become dry, loaded with the same old stories and annoying buzzwords (anyone want a surefire way to skyrocket their personal brand?) Content Untapped is a breath of fresh air. The inspirations and musings are heartfelt, well-researched and powerful food for creative thought.
