The Long Game

The Long Game

Omniscient Digital presents The Long Game. Join David Khim, Alex Birkett, and Allie Decker as they interview guests in the content marketing industry about mental models, archetypes, and underlying structures that allow them to flourish and scale. In Kitchen Side episodes, they'll pose questions and debate the answers in a behind-the-curtain style conversation. The Long Game Podcast is about playing infinite games in the world of content — and playing for long-term success. The hosts of this show don’t show up with a list of prepared questions. They let the conversation go where the interviewee wants to take it. We hope you enjoy and find value in our show.
