That Marketing Dude Show (tmd Show)



That Marketing Dude was founded by me, Luke Benjamin Thomas, a world traveler, digital nomad and motor mouth. I help digital nomads and location independent entrepreneurs, and those aspiring to become either, to build businesses that allow them to focus more on travel.I started this podcast because I was sick of listening to the same type of shows... So I created something different. I bring on guests as "co-hosts", not to interrogate them. I publish 3 shows a month talking about a specific topic related to business or travel and 1 episode a month purely on travel stories.With inspiration from people like; Pat Flynn and Smart Passive Income, Chris Ducker at Youpreneur, John Lee Dumas for EOFire, Josh and Jill Stanton from Screw The Nine to Five, Tim Ferriss and his 4 Hour Work Week book AND of course sprinkle in some awesome travel stories like you see at Extra Pack of Peanuts and Zero To Travel... I think I've created a rather unique show!Subscribe and get the most interesting business and travel podcast in your ear holes every week.
