Marketing Muckraking podcast with Rachael Kay Albers - what is brand culture doing to us?

“I Hate Marketing” and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves

This episode was originally published as an essay on my blog on February 2, 2022. Read the full text transcript of "I Hate Marketing" And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves.

When entrepreneurs say, “I hate marketing,” we're not telling the whole story.

Join me, your host, Rachael Kay Albers, marketing muckraker and brand strategist gone wild, as I explore the "crisis of faith" many entrepreneurs experience when we are forced to learn and speak the language of capitalism in the process of running a small business.

About the Marketing Muckraking podcast

Welcome to Marketing Muckraking, the show that asks not simply what brand culture can do for us, but what it’s doing to us — with your host, creative director, brand strategist gone wild, and the court jester of online business, Rachael Kay Albers — making fun of business and making business fun.

This is the show for rebels, revolutionaries, and renegades who run businesses that burn the rulebook. If you’re sick of business podcasts with all the answers — I’ve got nothing but questions.

Where we swap B School for FREE SCHOOL, easy for honest, and goal digging for marketing in pursuit of meaning.
