I’ll Drink to That?

Dan is a fabulous interviewer who has curated a fascinating lineup of guests. The questioning always sheds light into the true life and career journeys of startup success stories, and puts the audience in a relatable head space. I’m learning and being entertained. It’s also awesome when certain guests are slurring their words by the end.

Knowing more about the narratives that makes great product builders

This podcast is informative, useful and a pleasure to listen to. Dan has the ability to have people reply to difficult questions. I don't know if it's due to his calm and reassuring tone and voice, or the context of being in a bar around a drink. He get more from his guests than what you would expect in a standard industry interview. This podcast has a secure space in my favorite rotation.
