    Podcast Pivo November 2020 Update

    Podcast Pivo November 2020 Update. With the COVID-19 pandemic numbers skyrocketing in the Czech Republic and an enhanced state of emergency, Podcast Pivo took a little break. So in the meantime, I thought I would give you an update on my upcoming book and TV drama, Social Media and the Seven Deadly Sins. Stay tuned for more great guests coming soon on Podcast Pivo, when we hope the pubs can open again more quickly so we can get back talking to more great people and drinking a beer with them.

    Cedric Maloux the startup wizard of Prague

    Cedric Maloux is the managing director of Startupyard. Cedric is the most prolific digital entrepreneur in Prague. He has helped transform the Prague district of Smíchov into the Silicone valley start-up centre of Czechia. Since Twenty Eleven Startupyard has accelerated over 70 companies. Many of which have since been acquired, with over THIRTY MILLION EUROS of seed capital raised. The Startupyard program culminates each year with a DemoDay, a public pitching event which is a magnet for influential executives, investors as well as technology and business media. DemoDay is a showcase, and an opportunity for the start-ups to gain investments, engage with the business community, and to pitch their ideas. A live dragons den. It has become so popular that tickets to attend DemoDay sell out within hours of going online. Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions - I caught up with Cedric via Zoom where we talked about technology, start-ups, poker and pivo.

    Adrian Stout & the infectous sounds of The Tiger Lillies

    Adrian Stout & the infectous sounds of The Tiger Lillies

    Adrian Stout is the bassist in the provocative avant-garde punk cabaret band The Tiger Lillies. For over 25 years Adrian has been touring the world performing to sell out crowds and gracing the stage of Europe’s alternative theatre scene as well as grand stadiums and concert halls.

    The Tiger Lillies experience is not for the faint hearted. A show will take you on a wild rollercoaster of emotions from laughs, to tears, insanity to euphoria.The unique sound of Martyn Jacques voice combined with the tight rhythmic bass-lines of Adrians strings make an evening at the theatre a flashback to the true cabaret experiences reminiscent of post war Berlin.

    Adrian lived and worked in Prague for many years and was a familiar face at the infamous Bukowskis bar to name just one dive bar of most significance. Please welcome Adrian Stout to Podcast Pivo for our second episode of season one.
