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.
Fun and intelligent conversations, well curated guests
Very much enjoy the series both from the hosts insightful questioning and the incredible curation of guests. Highly recommend for anyone in the creative and media industry!
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.
