This Old Marketing

Big news this week as PENN sells Barstool Sports back to David Portnoy and (in an obvious move) partners with ESPN to create ESPN-branded sportsbooks around the country.

Could this be the end of civilization as we know it?

In other news, the "Apple buying Disney" frenzy continues. Joe and Robert argue about it for 10 minutes and both thinks they won the argument.

Spotify and NPR are killing off podcasts. Is the a good business move or a lack of long-term thinking?

And Kai Cenat creates a mob in New York City. Should Kai have known better?

In rants and raves, Joe raves about the Barbie movie while Robert rants about media's coverage of the recent Zoom news.
