It wasn't enough that Jay Baer wrote a book, has an amazing blog and does amazing work -- he now had to add podcasting to his arsenal. Break a leg!


I started following Jay on Twitter about a year ago and have really appreciated the great content he has put out. This podcast goes above and beyond though, and really gets to the meat of what is going on in the social and digital media space. Keep up the good work @jaybaer!


This show is so good that I can't stop listening to it. Learn how to use social media and ecommerce to grow your business.


Thank you so much for providing this not only interesting show, but also fun!
