I’ve been doing a lot of mundane work over the past few weeks, so to keep from nodding off and breaking my keyboard with my skull (some say I have an unusually thick head), I’ve been listening to podcasts. After hearing all 22 of the Micro-ISV shows at Channel 9, I ran out of material and hit Google searching for “startup podcasts.”
After weeding through a few generic entrepreneur sites (wanting sites with more of a tech-focus), I finally stumbled on Startup Studio. The rest of this post is going to sound like an advertisement, but it’s not; I haven’t received any services or money from Startup Studio, it genuinely struck me as a site you should hear about.
Here’s what I like about Startup Studio over other startup podcasts I’ve tried: Betsy Flanagan, the interviewer, is well-spoken and asks the right questions. I’m sure it’s crafty editing, but I never hear “ummmms” and “uuuuuhs,” I don’t have to listen to inane tales about the founder’s 9 cocker spaniels (this is either good editing or knowing when to cut people off), and each interview has included at least one nuggest of advice from a seasoned entrepreneur that I’ve never heard before.
In addition, the interviewees are people I’ve never heard interviewed, and they have interesting stories to tell; examples include the founder of WordPress, co-founder of FeedBurner, and the founder of Tazo Tea. So even though the site is not all about tech companies, the non-tech interviews are so well put together that I want to hear them.
If you’re into podcasting and startups don’t miss Startup Studio. I’m definitely subscribing to this one.
