Q: Why should Zildjian choose Podcaft?
A: We bleed bronze.
Meet Dan Radin, CEO (some of you may remember him)
While completing studies at Berklee, Dan spent a semester at 22 Longwater Drive as Zildjian marketing intern, helping to launch the company’s updated website, writing artist profiles, press releases, and even some product copy that’s still in use today! Dan spent the next 15 years developing products at Sennheiser, Alesis, and JBL/Harman, earning an MBA from Loyola, and bashing bronze in spare time. After launching his podcast, Drum Showroom, in 2017, Dan discovered many points of pain. Podcraft was born to save brands the time, cost, and difficulty he encountered. And Podcraft is the perfect partner for Zildjian thanks to not only its world-class capabilities and solutions, but more importantly, its team’s deep, specific domain expertise.
Meet Toby Goodman, pro drummer turned marketer
Toby has worked as a professional drummer and percussionist since 1999, keeping time with many world-famous artists. He stepped away from full-time touring to concentrate on family life and got into marketing and podcasts five years ago.
Along with his work at Podcraft, Toby has helped world-class musicians develop their business chops including Zildjian artists Billy Ward and Andrew Small. His work with Simon Edgoose a regular member of both the Yamaha and Zildjian teams, has led to eDruminfo.com and a podcast that helps drummers envision the possibilities of electronic drums.
