    S2 E15: Desi McAdams, Nanno

    A mother of 2, Desi McAdam understands the needs of a parent. She graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in computer science, and loves to roller skate - and may have participated in roller derby a time or 2. Fast forward several years, she and her co-founder were meeting to figure out how to create a co-working space with childcare. In attempting to do this, they came up with the idea for Nanno - an on-demand platform for connecting parents to vetted, quality sitters.... when & where they need them.

    S2 Bonus: Andrew Overton, Saga

    S2 Bonus: Andrew Overton, Saga

    Andrew Overton is a finance grad from Howard University. He spent 3 years after graduation, in investment banking. After a while, he desired to work in tech and joined Graphiq in Santa Barbara to learn the ropes. During that time, he obtained his masters in CS from Johns Hopkins, and fulfilled his life long dream of working for Apple - specifically, on Apple Music data pipelines. Married to his wife Jessica, he is a family centered dude, looking up to both his brother and parents. And outside of tech, he loves to read and practice Ju Jitsu to blow off steam and practice thinking a few moves ahead.  During his career, he had the idea of saving his own family's story somehow, but drug his feet on the idea. In 2019, he committed to making progress and validated the idea - in fact, it was at this point where he connected with his co-founder, Amelia Lin, and set off to create a robust product to capture stories from your loved ones - through an easy interface, all in one place, and saved in audio format. It's like getting a personal podcast of your Grandma's childhood stories. This is the creation story of Saga.

Great Podcast!

Noah does a great job uncovering the details and thought processes that go into building a tech startup. Even if you’re not into tech, the stories are great!

Great intervews

This isn't a normal interview podcast! Noah did his homework before our call, asked great questions, and weaved my answers into a really nice narrative. If he asks you to be a guest, I highly recommend it!

Expertly fills a gap in the tech podcast world!

Code Story since it started has been a must-listen for me. I love hearing from leaders in the tech world and especially hearing more about the products that I use everyday. There isn’t another podcast that I’ve found that fits that niche for me quite as well as Code Story has!
