448 - Shop Talk with Sean Mort

Like two star crossed lovers running in slow motion across a field with their arms wide open, Hamptons Brickey and The People's Champ are reunited for some serious shop talking. You can hear the excitement sizzling across international airwaves as Sean and Mark get on their respective mics and cover everything that been going on from their biggest fight to seat selections on an airplane. With the iPad Pro garnering more attention, Sean wants to know if he can replace his laptop with work continuing to pour in and another hectic travel schedule looming on the horizon. Mark details out some of his early notes about using the iPad Pro and details out the setup for the entire Brickey Household and what seems to be the best deal money can buy. NDA's, BFG's and some TV training round out this return to form to kick off your week with Adventures In Design.
