Thanks for the review on iTunes

A resource: insightful, current & focused content

in iTunes by Gromosports from Germany on April 2, 2016

Tough to find more focused, specialist content at the intersection of sports (marketing) and digital/online media + technology. Diversity of guests in terms of both occupation and home-market pretty much guarantees interesting knowledge spillovers. Thanks for days on days of great content Sean
