Welcome to season four of Just 3 Clicks. We’ve been away a short while, busy with work, busy with navigating our way around Covid-19 and busy interviewing for a brand-new role at Viddyoze: CEO.

It’s the latter that’s the focus of this episode, with Joey and David sharing their thoughts on a position that is much lauded, much misunderstood, and much desired. It’s good to be back.
