Podcast: Jazz with Jaffe

Last week I jumped on a call with Joseph Jaffe, who focuses on social media marketing.  Usually in my career, day job, and blogging style, I’m very structured, organized, and well…analytical.  I gave all that up to have an impromtu converation with Joseph to discuss social.  Listen in and tell me what you think.

A few topics we end up talkin about are:  Importance of signal vs noise, PR blackouts, Sponsored Conversations, Mother bloggers.   Let me know in the comments if you think you’d listen again –or why you would not.

  • If you like it, I want to get Steve Rubel involved –who was a founding member of this long running podcast.

  • Hmmm maybe I should do a guest slot!

  • Really interesting way to start my Monday morning. I would definitely be interested in hearing more of these, maybe a once a week or a few a month type thing. Jaffe’s comments on Facebook really resonated with some experiences I’ve been having lately and the discussion on the value of joe shmo customer vs. industry big timer is definitely worth exploring and thinking more about. Thanks for taking the time to have these sort of convos early in the morning.

  • Thanks Chris, that’s helpful feedback. I think I can only afford to do about 1 a month tho…

  • A one-hour listen and I’m well-fed for the day! I’ll echo Chris’ comment with this: Big influencers vs. “uber-customers”- the battleground is social media.

  • And one more thing.. great use of jazz riffing!

  • I think it was fine. I normally like the structured thing, but I think it worked for me. I got inspired on a few things, thought some other issues were left hanging and you could get back to them later – and then again some of it was just talk, which I don’t remember. But that’s how radio works, so why not here 😉
    I probably prefer a “podcast”, where the conversation is more like 50%/50%, but with Jaffa that might not be so easy. Anyhow, its great when two people have something to say instead of one person who has all the questions and one who has all the answers.

  • I enjoyed your contributions, but was disappointed in the manner in which the interview progressed. (definitely the last 20 minutes). Jaffe kept interrupting your comments (rudely I might add) and then his dominating, self-serving rant became a bit “too much”. (I’ve listened to a number of JJ’s podcasts . . . I don’t know if I’ll bother tuning in again . . . )

    I’ve always enjoyed listening to your insights in other interviews. I always learn something new and very helpful as I am social media “rookie”. I would love to listen to your podcasts. Keep us posted Jeremiah! Stay structured . . that’s your strength.

  • Thanks Cami for this feedback. I’ll factor that in.

    I’m naturally a structured thinker, I agree, that may be my strength.

  • Cami, I am the Chief Interruptor at the end of the day.

    I’ll take a listen to the last 20 minutes, but from what I recall we were skatting and riffing and although I’m no jazz major, I suspect that’s what jazz is all about.

    In any event, good luck with your adventures with social media, “rookie”. I’m sure you’ll do just fine, even without being a listener of Jaffe Juice. You’ve already mastered the art of self-entitled snarkiness. Now all you have to do is call yourself an “expert” and you should be all set.

    PS fwiw, I found Jeremiah to be equally pushy, opinionated and interruptive. Perhaps that’s why we got on so well 🙂

  • Actually, people say I’m more big headed than pushy, or is that the same? Yeah. (something I need to work on regardless)

  • Really interesting way to start my Monday morning. I would definitely be interested in hearing more of these, maybe a once a week or a few a month type thing. Jaffe's comments on Facebook really resonated with some experiences I've been having lately and the discussion on the value of joe shmo customer vs. industry big timer is definitely worth exploring and thinking more about. Thanks for taking the time to have these sort of convos early in the morning.
