A few years ago MouthMedia co-founder Rob Sanchez had been building a new kind of concept for an apparel business named Ralph and Remington, offering a novel approach to transparency, including a groundbreaking look behind the scenes as the business was developing. Because the brand was inspired by the ethos of the 1940's, we worked together to create an old-time radio style show reminiscent of that time, which was intended to be one of the unique ways to bring attention to the brand. Although Rob decided to put the project aside for a while to give full attention to MouthMedia, we had already completed three unreleased episodes of the podcast serial. So this week we have decided to pull them out of the vault, dust them off, and share them with you. We know pretty much everyone is going through a tough time now and trying to make the best of the current new realities at home. To offer you some entertainment, and perhaps inspire you with a fun example of creative marketing content, we thought we'd pull something very different out of the vault that we haven't shared before.
