The tech world is understandably frustrating and at some point, you’ve just had enough. For Katie Smith-Adair, that point came after she watched Sonar, the startup she was working for, blow up.

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.

Real stories from successful tech people
I love the concept of this podcast: sitting down over your favorite drink to talk about your tech career. I've learned a lot about the qualites you need to have to break into the tech industry and be successful. Also love that 50% of the guests are female. So unusual on a business-focused or tech-focused podcast.
