Thoughtful conversations beyond the jargon and fluff

I just started listening but am already impressed. The conversations really move past what you commonly hear on “startup” or “entrepreneur” podcasts, looking at the why behind the people and the endeavors.

Conversation with Paul O’Brien from March (right after SXSW cancelled because of the pandemic) is especially good.
