[REPLAY] Changing Mindsets in Music Innovation

[REPLAY] A 2018 podcast favorite -- To marketer Michele Tharp, innovation is creating a better way to do something, and working with an inner desire to make a change.

She shares with us two current projects connecting both public radio stations and VR to artists and their audiences.
