We continue with the updated format of the podcast adding some new and some familiar voices to the mix.
David Raymond joins Cudo to discuss the Viking Mascot mess in Minnesota. Then Scott Carter from the Durham Bulls talks about promotions around sports, including a look at the on-going challenge of selling tickets to the Minor League Baseball playoffs, including one teams solution.
Dylan Ward from the Reading Royals talks about their new noise-worthy promotion, the Cowbell Chorus.
A new feature called the #TuesdayTip with Matt Heuer returns, but without Matt. We explain why and provide a tip worthy of the occasion.
We conclude with some insights from Anne Wright who toured the NBA for 7 years giving feedback and guidance to teams. We find out from her how to approach a game review and how to avoid telling teams how they “rank”.
