Michael Wolf from GigaOm Pro asked me if I’d like to join him for his podcast last week, and the results were good! Lots of stuff in there of interest to readers here: tales from Current, Twitter, Kickstarter, Annabel Scheme—and even the Snarkmarket origin story, which comes first in the conversation.
Key theme/takeaway: everything is connected.
Listening to the beginning of the podcast reminds me, again, that this is totally a format I don’t understand. I don’t listen to any myself—they just don’t fit into my day, somehow—but I know that many people do, and jeez, what a gift of attention. You think about the size of the audience for a podcast like TWiT and the fact that they all let Leo Laporte into their head for an hour every week… an hour! To me, that basically sounds like the equivalent of “they all dump a cart-load of pure gold in front of Leo Laporte every week.” Wow.
