Podcast Recommendations

I’ve recently had a number of friends ask for podcast recommendations. Here’s a few of my favorite episodes.

Song Exploder – Black Pumas

Song Exploder is a podcast where musicians deconstruct their songs and talk about how they were made. I love this one about “Colors”, a song by Austin, Texas based Black Pumas.

How I Built ThisĀ – Yvon Chouinard

How I Built This has a lot of interesting interviews with business founders. Yvon Chouinard of Patagonia is one I enjoyed because of his different take on business.


StartUp Podcast – Dov Charney

StartUp Podcast did an entire season following Dov Charney, the founder of American Apparel, as he worked to start is second company Los Angeles Apparel. Interesting character study to say the least.


Reply All – Long Distance

What if you just stayed on the phone and talked with the phone scammer? This episode goes further than you might expect.
