Hey everyone,

I'm sure you've all seen by now that BrightLocal has launched its own podcast, Adventures in Local Marketing. I just wanted to share our latest episode with you all here as it features none other than Sterling Sky's Jason Brown!

In this episode Jason discusses the dangers of GMB spam, how best to tackle it, the latest tricks spammers are pulling, and how he got into spam-fighting in the first place. It's a really great listen and Jason is always full of great insights so I'd highly recommend taking a look when you get a chance.

Happy listening, folks :D
