Pat Walker returns and reviews a steakhouse’s costly game promotions in Michigan, Rob Wicall connects a great mascot and their social media work, and Scott Carter looks at how game directors build a successful program.
Then Cameron Hughes and Kronke Sports Executive Director Steve Johnston talk about building entertainment teams and getting the most out of halftime acts.
Looking back at our 2011 Podcast when Cudo and Walker debate if its acceptable to play off boos with your fans.
