    Truthiness in Marketing

    Episode #60
    The Music Biz Weekly Podcast

     

    Join myself & Michael Brandvold for a 1 Hour episode as we shoot the shit on a variety of topics that are at the forefront of our mind.

    Our casual, up front and honest discussion touches on truthiness in marketing, buying fans and plays and listens (or gaming the system), and being careful who you work with. We also touch on a little known Facebook feature, Interest Lists.

    At the end of the podcast I mention one of the most commonly asked questions I get from musicians, along with a recommended blog post which I think every artist should read.
