Fresh format for stale genre

A lot of B2B SaaS marketing shows are pretty boring. Back and forth interviews with the same people get old after a while.

I really appreciate Aazar’s fresh take – part narrative, part interview. There’s always good stuff in there and heaps of takeaways too.

Great podcast. Great host. Great resource!

Insightful and thought-provoking stories. Each episode gives you food for thought which is why it’s a part of my regular listening. Great stuff Aazar 👊🏾
