Episode 89

March 18, 2022

It’s Friday and time to drop episode 89 of the Promo UPFront Podcast with Kirby Hasseman and Bill Petrie on a few eager listeners. This week the Sultans of Shenzhen talk about the trend of consumer brand tattoos, ponder how the shutdown of both Shenzhen and Guangong will further stretch the supply chain, share a golden rule of client communication, opine on Dov Charney’s (LA Apparel) bankruptcy filing, and dig deep into Coca-Cola’s “Starlight” flavor and how it might damage their brand, and so much more!
