A great listen!

First of all, Dave is an awesome. Super engaging and entertaining. On top of that, his guests are awesome — I get so much information (and entertainment) out of every episode. Really happy I found the Marketing Swipe File podcast.

Practical and inspirational

I wasn’t sure I needed one more marketing podcast to listen to, but the marketing swipe file became one of my favorites. DGs direct and down to earth style is fun to listen to and makes me feel like I’m part of the conversation. Great interviews and great solo episodes, I learn something new every time.
