February 2016 Podcast

Cudo is joined by Matt Heuer and Pat Walker to look at promotions and hot topics in game operations, including a last-minute cancelled giveaway, the shocking King Cake Baby and the Curtain of Distraction. Cameron Hughes jumps in with a jolt of enthusiasm as well.

Cudo, Heuer and Walker talk about promotions in Sacramento, Golden State, and an in-person account of the award winning Chick-Fil-A Foul Shot. The guys go in-depth on the growing trend of fan-initiated foul shooting distractions, then Superfan Cameron Hughes joins in from London with a look at how touring acts can adapt to your crowd and your game situation.
