As I said on yesterday’s show a butt hurt person contacted all my sponsors complaining about TSP. Western Botanicals did reach out and ask about the situation. Randy (one of the owners) and I had a good conversation about the situation.
My stance was, TSP was this way when you found us 8 years ago and we are not going to change. They simply did a thoughtful investigation into what occurred and came to the conclusion that our partnership was more valuable than one person complaining. They are great partners who have supported us and we have supported them for 8 years and I look forward to at least 8 more.
Now Randy told me one of you told them you’d not do business with them again over this, that is NOT helpful. They are again a great partner who simply cared enough to reach out and investigate the situation. Please be supportive of them, 8 year sponsorships tend to not exist in the world of podcasting though they seem very common here at TSP.
We deeply value our relationship with Western Botanicals and all our sponsors. If I ask you guys ever to reach out and let any of them know that you value you them, please do so, but don’t use any sort of threatening language that is never helpful and frankly when people do that to me, I tell them to pound sand or worse.
Again Western Botanicals is a wonderful partner, they made a firm decision to stand with us as they always have. For that we are grateful and remain their loyal partner.
