LIVE FROM NEW YORK! Its Still Unsponsored! This one is a bit of a wreak. We struggle with a new audio setup that turn out also be a terrible analogue radio receiver. Still we press on and talk the virtues of aged beef in New York City, which sports ball ads have long term staying power and what dumbasses are trying to kill youtube monetization this week (hint: its the same guy). Finally we go deep into view through conversion and how you should think about them.
Warning, don’t gorge on breakfast tacos before recording if you want to make an energetic and engaging podcast. In this episode we lazily discuss: the possibility of Amazon coming to Austin, Twitter telling people they interacted with Russian trolls, Superbowl advertising, and YouTube booting people off monetization.
