Brandon Masters ,

A truly innovative, engaging podcast about retail and it’s always-changing landscape!

I always thought that retail was a simple concept- shopping, merchandising, mannequins show you what the clothes look like on a body, etc.

This podcast completely surprised me and took my minimal knowledge of retail and transcended it. There is so much to learn... not just how retail works as an industry but how the great minds behind-the-scenes create and execute their strategies. Retail is being transformed and revolutionized before our eyes and I had no idea!

The retail sector was never really something that I ever gave much thought about but now I truly find it intriguing because it’s not just about retail but about how business sectors are changing as well through modern technological business practices and innovative strategy.
