042 Jennifer Briney | I Actually Enjoy Reading the Bills, Which Means I’m a Giant Nerd


Listen Now!

Here’s the Recap:

I first met Jen Briney at New Media Expo and really loved what she's doing with her podcast. She reviews the bills coming out of the House of Representative and Congress on her podcast. Be warned that this is not a 30 minute show! Jen and I talk about her podcast, how she got started, how she's monetizing her show, and much, much more. Please feel free to contact either me or Jen if you guys have any ideas on how she can spread the word and increase her listenership.
