It's Mark's birthday blowout and that means he gets to do whatever he wants. If he wants to offer a massive 24" x 36" False Idol print from Bonethrower that has been sold out for a long time now... he gets to do it. If he wants to talk with Mike Hammer of Violent Gentlemen... he gets to do it. If he wants to talk about the new problems that come with a new climate... he gets to do it because that's how birthdays work! Mark and Hammer talk about everything from being a Belieber to social media strategies and a big announcement about some regularly schedules episodes next year. Behind all the fun and fireworks, this episode is packed with chicken nuggets for you like the best length to run a sale, the importance of quality, and winging it once you're the boss. Wish your favorite podcaster Mark Birckey a "Happy Birthday" today and thanks for listening!
