Kate F8 ,

Awesome & relevant podcast!

I love this Podcast and look forward to it each week. It is very informative and a must listen for any modern marketer.
And the tone and different takes on things are relatable. It is like listening to friends talk about marketing trends. I learn something new (many things, actually) each week. Thanks for doing this, Cypress North team!

Love it - a bit heavy on paid

Great content and great hosts. They share stuff you can actually use. For example their insights got me into Spotify video podcasting in no time. A little heavy on the paid side but decent mix overall of the different areas of marketing.

What Can I say? These Guys Feel Like My Friends!

This is another podcast you should listen too weekly and make sure to listen until the end when they “shoot the heck”. My favorite part is straight out of our accounts into your ears. It’s funny and relevant!
