Episode 9: Fat Thanksgiving Newspapers, the Amazon Boogeyman, and Why You Should Be Thinking About Weed

Mon, 11 Nov 2019


With shopping season upon us, Gordon and Corey discuss the media industry's obsession with protecting its news franchise while letting another franchise -- advertising information -- slip away. Is Facebook's friendly approach to local news actually bad for the industry? Is Amazon the boogeyman poised to steal everything away? The show also features an interview with cannabis marketing expert Greg Heiman from SiteImpact and a discussion of how marketing for CBD products and cannabis has mushroomed to a $2 billion segment. (Sponsor note: the phone number mentioned in this week's commercial spot is 561-685-8991.)
