About the Podcast

In this episode of “State of Readiness”, I welcome Michael F. Schein; the Head Hype Man at MicroFame Media. We met at a “non-conference” in Saratoga Springs in the summer of 2021 where Michael was speaking about “hype”.

When Michael graduated from university (much to his parent’s chagrin) he announced that he was going to be in a rock-band. Even though the band didn’t become its own genre, they did pretty well. Much of the band’s success was attributed to do with Michael “hyping-up” the band and its promotion; even going so far as purposefully booking themselves in a venue where they knew they would be booed off the stage. After all, there is no such thing as “bad publicity”.

In our conversation, Michael shares his thoughts on what hype is and how to use it as a positive force to create an energy around your persona to stand-out from the crowd and be recognized; mastering the art and science of using shameless propaganda for personal and social good.

Imagine if you could generate and leverage hype for positive purposes―like legitimate business success, helping people, or effecting positive change in your community.

Influencers have always deployed the power of hype to get what they want. But never in history have people been so susceptible to propaganda and persuasion as they are now. Hype truly runs our world.
