** BONUS EPISODE SEASON! **
This is the first episode of a handful we're doing this month when we normally take a break. We want to do a couple of things with these shows. The first effort at-hand is to amplify Black voices. We must do better about having a more diverse mix of guests on, and right now it's most important for Black voices to be heard.
Gary Ware is a special soul, and the perfect person to have on our first summer bonus episode of Making a Marketer. Culture is being transformed on all levels, and it is requiring allies willing to stand up, wherever we are.

As we move forward with the podcast, the Black Lives Matter movement will not be "the" subject, but we will make a conscious effort to have more Black people and other people of color on the show. We will also do some shows on marketing in the cannabis industry - a topic so popular, we just have to (episode 26 from November of 2018 is the second most downloaded episode of the past two years so far)! Next up: Kendra Losee talking about Marketing CBD as we record on Facebook LIVE.
We hope you enjoy the BONUS content, and we'd love your feedback on who and what you'd like in the show.
