    The Future State Of Podcast - The EV Coffee Edition
    This week Nick and I introduce a monthly podcast segment around pitching an idea which we then review, ask the exec style questions (yes we use the word TAM numerous times) and this week we see if Nick would invest in my EV (electric vehicle) coffee shop on wheels.
    We talk about:
    - Why we could take the 75% market of remote and WFH army
    - The importance of local
    - Why jingles are a Marketing goldmine
    - Why community might just be the underestimated angle
    - The importance of a strong hook
    - Why Nick thinks an adult ice cream van is the crack for adult-like ice creams in the park are for kids

    • Are high streets, shopping centres, retail parks considered the same thing or are they all competing?
    • Why immersive experiences are the way to go
    • Why Google, Amazon and Apple have stores as essential brand extensions
