Because Jen is a publicist, this section is an interesting one for me.
Fritz Media pitches to me like several publicists do. To date, I've published three free weekly articles – one per month this spring – that started with pitches from Jen.
First, Keanu Ienco, whom we talk about in this episode. His project was the first time that I gave coverage to one of Jen's clients.
Then, Jen pitched me a concert series which spanned across the country, and I covered our local leg of the series.
And third (so far), I received this blues album and enjoyed it enough to publish.
By coincidence, Jen is the first Fritz Media affiliate to appear on the Rhythm Changes Podcast.
Jen and I both talked about our podcasts. Here are the past episodes that I brought up to her:
I mentioned this well-loved episode from deep in the back catalogue.
I also emphasized what my mother taught me about self-employment survival skills.
And here are Jen's episodes that we referenced:
