This is good

Greg gets great guests and asked them fantastic questions, then actually lets them speak. I have enjoyed the interviews!

If you are building something… this podcast is for you

I find myself saving every episode of Greg’s podcast to share some insight or idea with my team. I relisten to this show more than any other, eager to join in on the ideation in my own head as Greg and guests riff on startup ideas or new strategies and tools… I’m thankful for a seat at the table in the room where it happens.
