THE FYRE FESTIVAL: This Wednesday on

This Wednesday on, my regular co-host, Jen Hoverstad, and special co-host, Jennifer Quinn, yours truly, and guests, will be discussing the Fyre Festival event, what went wrong, and promoter and influencer liability. We’ll also share valuable tips on how you can try to prevent this from happening to you.
