In this episode #223 of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert go inside Peloton...discussing the ad, the aftermath and what might happen to the brand in the future. Robert believes many mistakes were made, but the public's reaction was a pure over-reaction. Joe thinks that we can't judge the outcome until the next quarter's results are in.

In other news, the boys dissect the #SubscribeSunday program from Boston Globe, and how brands can use both an "event" and a collaborative effort to launch and grow content marketing initiatives.

Finally, Joe and Robert discuss the huge opportunities and challenges for brands who want to acquire distressed media assets.

In rants and raves, Joe raves about Straight No Chaser while Robert rants on California's upcoming privacy law (CCPA), with a helpful infographic from Ruth Carter on how to comply with CCPA.
