  1. Mitch,
    Good conversation with Shiv.
    The ship on truth has sailed. People today want simple answers to complex problems. They just don’t have the ability, time or interest to determine what is the truth.
    Marketing has been profiting from perpetuating lies for so long so I am surprised a guy from marketing has written a book on post truth.

    1. Not sure if it’s “marketing” or “advertising” that you’re talking about. I would argue that advertising has been shifting in message for decades. Hard to lie without getting sued or having your product/service tank these days… and it has been “these days” for a long while now.

  2. I really enjoy the insights explored on your podcasts but probably won’t listen to this episode because it will end with the same long music track as all the others. I normally can’t interact with my phone while listening to podcasts and can’t just skip it so I’m now skipping podcasts.

    1. I have no idea what you mean. You can’t hit the “stop” button? I shared your comment with a fellow podcaster and this was their response/translation of your comment: “Thanks for the amazing meal. I loved it! But I won’t come back because the walk from the table is too long.” Lastly, you do know that this content is free? All of it. It doesn’t even have ads or sponsors.
