EP74: Curt Maly: Ethical Propaganda and the BELT Method

How often do you look outside the marketing box for inspiration? There is a wealth of books on marketing and strategies and so forth, but often, the most effective strategies may be found in other arenas of entertainment or politics. And once you fundamentally understand the psychology behind those golden strategies, it’s amazing how patterns begin to emerge in the people you see every day.
