  1. Carol and Christina,

    Thank you for the amazing podcast. As a marketer for a small local business, I never thought that contacting podcasters could benefit my business. Also, sending a video instead of written emails to journalists is an amazing idea to be unique in order to get local news coverage.

    best regards,
