    This week on IP Goes Pop!, Joseph Gushue, Shareholder with Volpe Koenig, joins fellow Shareholder Michael Snyder to talk about IP “urban legends.” What is an IP urban legend?

    In this episode, Michael and Joe surveyed colleagues, friends, and family and collected their IP urban legends and questions. With the help of Joe’s encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture, Michael and Joe try to set the record straight.

V. Snyder ,

A learning experience that’s also fun.

I’ve always been interested in learning more about patents and trademarks because I’m a business owner and have great ideas. This podcast has already taught me so much. I was also a Tiger King fan so this makes it even more interesting. Looking forward to more episodes!
