This Old Marketing

Neil Young gives the finger to Spotify, while influencers and content creators fight for naming rights.


In today's episode, Neil Young takes a stand against Joe Rogan and Spotify. Will it work and does it matter?

And...right-wing commentator Joe Bongino gets booted from YouTube. Do they have the right, and what's the long-term play?

We discuss the meaning of influencers versus creators as McDonald's goes influencer, Trump Social goes searching, and Forbes gets into the creator economy.

And finally, Tom Brady launches his new crypto NFT project. Yes, we are going back to the year 2000.

In rants and raves, Joe raves about Andy Weir's new book, and Robert rants about Google and ad privacy.

In this week's news, Microsoft buys Activision for $69 billion (are you kidding me?). Is this important and why should creators/marketers care?

There is a new bill on the hill about data and advertising. The only thing we know for sure is that first-party data is more important than ever. Get those emails ready to go!

Google/YouTube drops YouTube Originals. Can Google commit to anything? Was this a sound decision?

Joe raves about a Web3 chart and reviews the online battle for Web3 between Prof G and Packy McCormick. Of course, both Joe and Robert have a take. Robert then raves about Edelman's new trust report.

This week, Joe and Robert cover The New York Times purchase of The Athletic. The good, the bad and the very ugly. All in all, we're thumbs up.

The Information says media valuations are down except for paid subscription models. True? Well, not really.

Oh...and Jake Paul launches a sports drink while a reality star sells her farts as NFTs (you can't make this stuff up).

In rants and raves, Joe comments on the Great Resignation and a big deal in NIL sports. Robert then goes old school with Harvard Business Review.
