    #31 – The future of hardware for continuous glucose monitoring (Josh Clemente)

    As a company focused on metabolic health and continuous glucose monitoring, it's important for Levels to be on the forefront of technology. For our team, it means that we must understand what's possible – today and in the future. And, there's no one better to talk to about the subject than Josh Clemente – Co-founder of Levels.

    Josh is a Mechanical Engineer by training, and spent many years at SpaceX putting rockets into the air. He has an innate connection to engineering, manufacturing and technology, so diving deep into conversations about hardware comes naturally.

    #29 – Mental models and heuristics – shortcuts to be more productive (Sam Corcos)

    #29 – Mental models and heuristics – shortcuts to be more productive (Sam Corcos)

    Mental models allow us to take shortcuts when makings decisions. The heuristics that create the foundation of mental models can be stacked on top of each other to form new mental models, when solving problems. Some mental models are quick and easy – others are more complex. For Sam Corcos, co-founder and CEO of Levels, it's no surprise that he has many mental models – for pretty much every situation in life and business.

    #28 – Ecosystems & platforms – a deep dive into tech with David Rosenthal

    #28 – Ecosystems & platforms – a deep dive into tech with David Rosenthal

    When most companies start, they are single-threaded companies. More specifically, companies start with one product or revenue stream and evolve. Amazon is a great example of a company that has built an ecosystem. The company started as an e-commerce site for selling books, and now has a number of inter-related businesses that make up the entire Amazon ecosystem.

    Netflix is an example of a company that started as a single-threaded company and has, for the most part, remained that way since its inception.

    As we build Levels, we often think about the way that our company will evolve – will it be an ecosystem for health, or will we remain focused on monitoring glucose? In this episode, David Rosenthal, (VC and Host of Acquired Podcast), dives deep into what it takes to build an ecosystem around a company.

    #27 – Principles of effective communication (Michael Mizrahi & Sam Corcos)

    #27 – Principles of effective communication (Michael Mizrahi & Sam Corcos)

    Communication and communication platforms – specifically in a work setting – can lead to increased productivity, or can unfold as a distraction mechanism for urgency. Unfortunately, for most companies, the latter is often true.

    In a world of constant connection and notifications, the expectation around professional communication is often positioned as "the faster, the better". However, is it the platforms or the way in which teams use specific platforms which encourages and enables this behaviour to take place?

    The entire Levels team values deep work and asynchronous communication, and we're constantly trying to get better at it as we scale our team. Sam Corcos, co-founder and CEO of Levels, and Miz (Michael Mizrahi), Head of Operations, spent time thinking about platforms that would encourage a healthy communication cadence, and productive communication etiquette for our team.

    #26 – Nutrition & Kids – A parent's perspective with Kelly LeVeque

    #26 – Nutrition & Kids – A parent's perspective with Kelly LeVeque

    For parents, feeding kids a balanced diet can feel like an uphill battle. People are surrounded by fast, convenient and highly processed food items, which can make the idea of 'meal time' easier to get through. But, these short-term choices can have long term health implications – especially for children.

    When kids are provided with the right foundation for the way to think about food and the choices in front of them, it can be easier to start them down the right path at an early age.

    Kelly LeVeque – nutritionist, author, podcaster, and an investor in Levels – takes the time to set a healthy foundation for her children. And, by 'controlling the controllable' – what she chooses to expose them to – getting her kids to eat a balanced diet is part of their routine.

An inside look!

Great podcast that provides an inside look at Levels. Most startups don’t ever reveal their secrets, but Levels lays everything out in the open...it’s a pretty cool approach! This podcast has a similar vibe to the early episodes of Startup, combined with the conversational approach of Marc Maron. Excited to hear more!
