Nexus PMG welcomes you to the Bigger Than Us™ podcast, which we, as energy geeks lovingly refer to as the BTU. Bigger Than Us is a podcast that focuses on ideas that will shape the future of our planet and ultimately, our existence. We will occasionally lean into energy topics because after all, it’s the key to our collective survival, but we’ll also explore other areas that we believe will have an effect that is Bigger Than Us.

    #33 Landon Brandon, Co-founder of Y Combinator-backed Project Wren - Live carbon neutral

    Landon started coding in junior high because he wanted to make video games, but over time I realized what I really wanted to do was make others happy. He saw technology as a tool to accomplish that mission, and came to the University of Southern California excited to build software. There Landon studied in a mixture of design, computer science, and business in the Iovine Young Academy. That's he met his cofounders Mimi and Ben. They launched Wren right after he and Ben graduated, on June 12, 2019, and it's been growing ever since. These days at Wren Landon still codes, but also spends a lot of time working with project partners and thinking about growth.
