Excellent podcast, well worth it for marketers with an eye on the future

Funny and informative. If you like the format of Mark Schaefers blogs (and whats not to like) this is the real life conversational version. Entertianing and packed full of insight. A regular listen

Catnip for Marketers

Informative, and witty insights in the world of marketing, that presents varied and well-rationalised perspectives not only on marketing but business and relevant current affairs too. Oh and a large dollop of banter and sarcasm. You don’t have to be quirky to work in marketing, but it does help.
