Notable Quotes

  • “The podcasting is the people’s media. I like the fact, personally, that it’s on all these different platforms and you’re not at the mercy of a big corporate. Now I think Spotify is really trying their best to gobble up as much of the market as they can.” - James Mulvany
  • “If you can help people spread their message or share their passion for a particular subject or particular type of music, that’s providing a service which they find very valuable, but not only the person that’s actually broadcasting, it’s the audience that’s receiving that information, or entertainment, or that news as well. The internet has always been a good tool to kinda do that. For me, it’s an exciting place to be.” - James Mulvany
