What a resource!

Marcus is a fantastic host with excellent probing questions. I’m starting my first PMM role after several years iterating in different industries and roles to find my “career product-market fit”, and couldn’t be more thrilled to have found this resource. Thanks for making A+ career conversations accessible to PMMs everywhere!

Learn about what you don’t know but should

From understanding the difference between B2C and B2B product marketing to relying on customer use cases to create messages in an industry you’re new in, this podcast will expose you to approaches that can help you become a better PMM. And the casual tone makes it so easy to digest. Highly recommend for PMMs curious about how others approach the role.
