Men who shave and men who don’t, this episode 31 of The Heart Of Marketing podcast is for you, and it’s about the newbie in the men’s personal hygiene category that is knocking out the biggest players.

While Jayme Soulati, the other always laughing jokester and cohost of The Heart Of Marketing podcast who is also president of Soulati Media, Inc., pokes a bit of fun at John for his intense distaste about the whole topic and his need to make a switch of razor brands, John defends his brand shift with the facts.
