485 - Shop Talk Special Report with Mark Brickey and Sean Mort

Mark Brickey

Shop Talk is back to bring us some international perspective on the US Elections and what the future holds. The People's Champ has survived Brexit thus far so we turn our ear across the pond to see what lies on the other side of political difficulty. Sean and Mark take all your breaking news and answer a lot of questions both on and off topic for where America will be heading for the next four years and the strategies we can make as creatives to thrive. While some people think the luxury items we make will be the first to go there are other, and much more agreeable, opinion about the potential response to buy small and support each other. Some of our hearts are still weighing heavy but this International Bromance isn't leaving without a couple good stories to get your head back in the game and on with life.
