Hi all!

It's the all important fifth episode of the UBports audiocast. Some say, shows have to reach their fifth episode in order to call themselves legit. Here we are, the most legit and lit audiocastwhen it comes to everything UBports related and unrelated. Proudly presented by @Wayneoutthere and @Exar_Kun

On this Episode the boys welcome their very first guest and discuss Marketing with this relative new guy in town.
@Mohannes is a Marketing, Communication & Community Manager at Smoose by day and UBports superhero by night. It is said that suits-up in his Batman outfit before he hits the community and provides it with Marketing, Branding and Content Strategy. Lately he developed himself als the Dark Knight of the non-tech part of UBports, pushing content in the shadows and helping out with blogs, audiocasts and other media related subjects.... And he likes to talk with a deep voice, for the ladies.
