Good podcast, needs better microphone

The content and delivery of TWISTA is good. I've been listening for a couple of seasons now. Great for keeping tabs on developments in the Australian startup scene.

My only complaint is that it's often difficult to hear, especially in the car, because the audio volume changes a lot or is closer to one of the people talking etc. Fix that and you're on to a winner!

Excellent podcast with unique AU perspective

Great podcast for Australian startups

Excellent audio quality. I've been a fan of TWIST and Jason Calacanis's email newsletter. Great to see TWIST has come to Oz! I listened to GoCatch episode and great to hear their story as I use their app to catch taxis. The podcast series features a number of startups from Australia.

The host Mark Pesce is a well known authority on startups and inventions, having been on ABC tv show The New Inventors. He's also a startup founder of Moore's Cloud.
