frankly…

We’re just a couple of communicators in the City of Detroit, talking integrated communications and connection with the best in the industry.

Hosted by Rachel Burnard and Dan Horn from Franco, Detroit’s longest-standing independent communications agency, this bi-weekly podcast discusses the changing realities of marketing and communications, what’s needed to succeed in the industry and generally inspiring conversations and connections to improve our businesses and communities.

Wonderful discussion and insight. Love listening to this on my drive!
