When it first came together, I’ll admit I wasn’t sure about the idea. I actually was still a little upset about the death of the first podcast, Small Data. I was merely an assistant on that team, and I was learning how that type of podcast came together. I would mostly do the transcribing of the dialogue from all the interviews, then send it over to the producer. No matter how little or prolonged of a task I had to do in the beginning, I still loved being part of the team, and producing interesting ‘story’ episodes about the intersection of data and humanity. I was even interviewed as part of an episode we were working on that never released (an interview that I promise will one day be released!).
The Leadership in Tech podcast was going to be different though, I was told. It would still be a tech podcast, just this time we have a partner, another co-host: Errol Doebler, owner of Leader193. He was a former Navy SEAL and FBI SWAT Operator. He was bringing the leadership element in while Zac and I would bring the tech, and production, elements from Salt.io. This time I had more responsibilities and it wasn’t long before I was in love with this podcast even more than the first one. I was also surprised how quickly it gained popularity, having had more listens than I was expecting for the first season.Read More
