This month we Party with Mike Abramson from the Hartford Yard Goats. Mike talks about several of the Yard Goats promotions in 2020, the importance of social media and the amazing sale figures of this Game of Thrones-themed hamburger.
We have an excerpt from an interview with Josh Pahigian, author of the Amazing Baseball Adventure and the show wraps with the 2020 Water Cooler Bracket, this time with guest Amanda Greco.
- Last Month on the Podcast: The February Party in the Back Podcast features guest Rob Wicall. Cudo and Wicall reflect moments of silence and tributes in the wake of Kobe Bryant’s untimely death. The discussion includes the difficulty of balancing a mascots traditional role with the somber mood of a tribute. Rob Wicall also shares insight on creating anticipation with fans and the powerful effects you can achieve by making people wait for the moment.
