Steal My Marketing is back after a long break of self-reflection and doubt. This conversation with Jonathan was recorded a few months back and has everything that I love about podcasting. It allows this 26-year-old to talk to someone I've never met about things I'm deeply interested in. The world is a fascinating place. It feels good to be back :)
