License Global's The Licensing Mixtape Podcast

Why are Nike’s Chunky Dunky going for $6k on eBay? How did Mickey Mouse find his way onto a COVID face mask? Who put all that "Stranger Things" gear in your Target cart? Find the answers to questions like these and more in a new podcast from the editors of License Global, The Licensing Mixtape, where we explore what makes consumers click “buy” on the products that stand out above the rest, thanks to a little thing called brand licensing.




Season 3 has landed, offering a dedicated look at the upcoming events, high-profile panels, and cutting-edge trend insights. To kick us off Anna Knight (VP, Licensing, Informa Markets) moderates a License Global Live panel with Mark Kingston (ViacomCBS), Gary Pope (Kids Industries), and Jon Gisby (WildBrain Spark) to discuss the evolution of kids content.
