5 star Insights on content and media

With so many tools at our disposal these days—channels, technologies, platforms, data, measurement—the most valuable are the storytellers. Not just copywriters; not just people who understand the medium or the channel. Storytellers. And Alex is one of the best storytellers out there who has a knack for drawing out the storytellers in others.

Compelling

This is beyond just an industry insider podcast. Sure it covers a lot of ground in the content space, but what it also does is provide great insight in how the overall media landscape is evolving from various different layers. Looking forward to more episodes and listening to what all the influencers have to say.
