Welcome to my new addiction.
StartUp is Serial meets Creative Entrepeneurship. Alex Blumberg, who used to work at This American Life (thus used to work with Sarah Koenig, who is behind Serial), left Public Radio after 15 years to start a company dedicated to create high quality podcasts.
He decided to record the full process of him going into the business world knowing close to nothing about it, and share with us the ups and downs of starting a start-up.
It’s addictive, it’s way too short (20 minutes an episode, what?!) and it might make you want to start a start-up.
There is something happening right now in the world of storytelling, something exciting and that feels big to me, and listening to StartUp is a great way to get a glimpse at what that ‘thing’ is. It would take a pamphlet for me to develop on that, so I’ll stop here, but if you are interested, go check startup and possibly email me to chat after.
Listen to the first episode:
StartUp was selected in the Monthly Creative Menu #14, which was emailed in March 2015.
