A new fav 🔥

Future Commerce is a new favorite in my feed! I’m truly impressed by the engaging discussions and insights into industry trends. Absolutely loved the recent episode with Neil Shankar and hearing about how brands are gaming our algorithmic overloads. Highly recommend giving this pod a listen!

Not your average eCom show

“Work content” that you actually WANT to listen to. Even look forward to!

Phillip & Brian bring fun & wit to eCom and retail news and practices. Curious where the industry is headed and what’s new? This is your show.

There is no other podcast I listen to as consistently.
