Now I tune into the newly launched The Ethical Rainmaker by Michelle Muri. Don’t miss it! What are your favorites?

Why do people give?
Mark Phillips
From face to face to regular giving and from high value to reporting back, the roots of our favourite fundraising techniques go back many, many years. It’s astounding that the ideas and tactics our fundraising forebears developed still boost income when we use them in the technologically advanced environment of today. As a result, when I consider a fundraising problem I always look to the past and use that understanding to create a solution for today. As part of my personal fundraising journey I’ve been spending time with the fundraisers who were involved in some of the most amazing campaigns from the second half of the 20th century to see what what I can learn from them. And I thought it would be a good idea to share their thoughts and stories so everyone can benefit – so I recorded them. This series of podcasts is the result.

Repeat Customer, Zendesk

Why do we have nothing but love for some brands—and, hate others with a passion? Repeat Customer is all about examining truly great customer experiences: How companies create them, and why superfans love them so much. CEOs, chief customer officers, and industry experts reveal the inside stories of how iconic companies rose to prominence by solving pain points, reimagining touch points, disrupting traditional business models, and staking their entire success on inventive, customer-focused approaches. And die-hard superfans share stories of their (sometimes) zany expressions of brand love. Hosted by Mio Adilman, produced by Zendesk. New episodes every other Monday.
