    On this episode of the UnPodcast, we talked about audio and other content formats, how to repurpose content, and why cassette tapes aren’t always a bad thing.

    We also played a game of “should you leverage that?” which ran the gamut from holidays such as Halloween to untimely deaths in airport parking lots.

    In addition to the above, we shared about a generous offer from Receipt Bank, and how you can get a free account.

    Just because people are talking about it, doesn’t mean you should leverage it. [Tweet This]
