In this episode, I speak with Entertainer, Mike Duseberg about the importance of creating connections through shared experiences. We discuss the significance of entertainment as it relates to corporate events, in both Live/Live and Virtual/Live, how great entertainers are able to “not cross the line,” and the evolution of everyone’s home studios.
