It’s 2021, and the podcast is back with some powerhouse guests.


James and his girlfriend, a very good sport, prepare for an alien invasion at the airport.

First up is Bob DeMarzo, new content lead for events and media at Channel Partners and Channel Futures. He talks with the guys about some of his goals in his new gig; plus, all three gents discuss what they think is coming for the channel in the new year.

Then, it spawned from a mission to protect telco agents getting shut out of rural health care deals. Now, organizers want it to blossom into a full-blown regulatory watchdog group for the agent community. Bill Power of the Alliance Partners and Darcee Nelan of IQ Wired explain the importance of the new Technology Channel Sales Professionals organization. You’ll want to find out how you can get involved in this budding industry association.

All that, plus the guys dig into what they’re looking forward in the new year; particularly what’s around the corner at Channel Partners Virtual and this fall’s live, in-person “Homecoming” channel event. You can learn all about them on our revamped Channel Partners Conference website!
