    Got to admit, lots of podcasts I didn’t know existed and can now listen to. IdeaCast, AMP, and Growth Everywhere are all great though.

    Bonus podcasts I love are “Growth Marketing Toolbox” (formerly Inbound Unboxed) from Earnworthy and “Advertising Influencers” from Instapage, which is relatively new but has had some big time advertising leaders as guests already.

    1. Sharon Hurley Hall June 12, 2017 at 4:45 pm

      Good to know, thanks, Taylen. We’ll certainly check those out. 🙂
