Every Game Needs PR – Behind The Games chat with O’Dell Harmon Jr.

Apple PodcastsSpotifyStitcherRSS

We’ve been talking to a lot of game devs and studios lately and I’ve been surprised at how many of even the smallest or solo developers are partnered up with a PR company. Sema and I don’t know all that much about what goes on there so I called up O’Dell, who I met at PAX. O’Dell Harmon Jr. is from Stride PR, a PR company that focuses on video game developers. We talk about all of what goes on with PR and how it ends up being really useful for studios of any size, and we get to hear about O’Dell himself and how he ended up doing what he does. Thanks O’Dell and Stride PR!
