MacVoices #21161: Jeff Carlson and Mason Marsh Launch the Photocombobulate Podcast

Jeff Carlson and Mason Marsh have teamed up to launch a new photography podcast, Photocombobulate. They join us to talk about what their show will offer, the genesis of the project, and who the target audience is. The conversation veers off into why photography can be so satisfying no matter what your skill level, learning to think like a photographer, and how they will be interacting with their audience.
