#30 - From Skrillex To Snapchat - Carly Wilford

Episode 30 - At first it's hard to define what Carly does, the best way to sum it up would be saying that she takes people and music that she loves and tells the world about it". Carly uses different channels and platforms to help artists and creatives that she likes go further. This is done through her work as a DJ, a presenter, a curator, a manager and as a creative. We discussed how she ended working with radio stations, working for big brands and Snapchat. We also touch on the sensitive topic of doing what you love for free versus knowing your value and charging for your services.
