    Why I "don't talk about punk"

    Why I "don't talk about punk"

    I answer one of my most common comments: "If your channel is called The Punk Rock MBA, why don't you ever talk about punk?"

    Why I believe that I DO talk a lot about classic punk and hardcore bands

    Why I don't want to do phoned-in videos about Bad Brains, Black Flag or Cro-Mags

    What artists I believe embody the spirit of punk (100 gecs)

SkaDan ,

Branching out!

I watch PRMBA on YouTube but came to the podcast for Metal Jesus Rocks. I loved the crossover content and would love to hear PRMBA talk way more about their video game experiences and opinions.

Business meets Scene

Y’all I love this podcast. I’m in a wildly different industry, but I’m all about learning and growing my business and fiscal skills.

Real convos, real concepts, interesting people. Count me in!

Excellent Diverse

I've watched Finn's youtube channel by the same name for a while and I really like his content. I thought i'd give his podcast a try. I wasn't dissapointed. He gives a great perspective on business which is a subject i've not dived into yet. Give it a listen if you like business from a punk rock (mindset) perspective.
