Notable Quotes: 

“You don’t want to create a show that’s been created 50 times, right? Find a niche or a
lane where you can create something that’s unique.” 

– Benjamin Shapiro “The big thing that we do that’s different than most podcasters is we have the ability to take the data of who listened to your advertorial content and who was exposed to your ads. And then we do more than just having that plate in your ears. We have the ability to retarget the listeners and create lookalike audiences off the people that were interested in your content.”
– Benjamin Shapiro

  “From a philosophy standpoint, I think the only thing that’s different from us and other people that are doing outsourcing is the idea that nobody works for me. They all work for themselves. And if we can’t figure out a way to help them achieve their career goals—whether it’s stability as a freelancer, whether it is learning new skills, whatever it is—if I can’t figure out a way to train my team to feel like they’re getting value and learnings out of the work we’re doing, they’re going to leave. And I want them to feel like they’re working for themselves because then they see the value out of it as opposed to working for me.”
– Benjamin Shapiro
