I recently purchased an Oculus Quest because I wanted to get into VR, but I only use Mac computers at home.

 It's official, the Modern Music Marketing podcast is live! If you watch my YouTube channel you may have noticed i've been doing a lot of interviews with people in the music industry. Since I teach music marketing and music business, I bring on experts and people who make a living with their music to learn more for myself and to help educate my audience.  The podcast is a way to spread that knowledge even further, and provide other types of content that aren't as well-suited for YouTube video content.  Click here to listen on Apple, Spotify and more.
