Ep068: Zimbabwe to Seattle

Welcome back o another episode of Catching Up! Nick is currently in Harare, the capital city of Zimbabwe because last week we attended their Founders Live Event. Nick talks about his experience thus far in Africa and reflects on the similarities of the entrepreneurial experience, while also pointing out the huge differences in how society operates over there. On the Seattle side of the world, we had a wild sports weekend with the Sounders winning MLS Cup and hosting a championship parade, as well as a crazy Monday Night Football Seahawks finish.

Ep067: Conner's Solo Episode Experiment

Ep067: For the first time in the history of this show, Conner will be hosting all by himself. Nick is in Africa this week hosting Founder's Live and isn't able to jump on the phone call. So instead of canceling the show all together, we handed the microphone over to Conner to experiment doing the solo show. Conner started a brand called Find Me in Seattle where he explores the city telling stories and sharing videos about the people, places, food and experiences that make our city interesting. This week Conner visited Oyster New Year by Elliot's Oyster House and also voted in this month's Seattle election. He also talks briefly about the Seattle Sounders hosting MLS Cup. But in true Catching Up style, we want to make sure we still focus on technology, startups and marketing, so Conner has two topics for the week. The first is related to the birthday of Alexa devices. Conner, and many others, received a random package from Amazon this week that contained a coffee tumbler with the writing "Alexa, order coffee" on it. It was a nice gift to receive from a relatively stingy company, but what surprised me the most was the thought about how voice could be the next big search engine. When you say "Alexa, order coffee," what coffee does she actually order? This is going to make branding so much more important, because unless you pay to be the default, you're going to lose a lot of sales unless the customer specifically asks to order your brand. Secondly, we learned about a unique approach to promoting movies by releasing them city by city and promoting them through events and thought it was a really great idea. It's being done by Kevin Smith, and his new movie "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot," is being promoted this way. We hope you enjoy Conner's solo episode and experiment for releasing a future Find Me in Seattle Show. Please let us know what you think!

Ep066: poliTECHS - Edward Snowden & Twitter political Ads

This might be the most politically heavy show we’ve ever had. Don’t worry we aren’t talking about trump or the election, this week is about politics and technology. Edward Snowden appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast this week and we highly encourage you to go listen to it. We also touch on Twitter banning political ads. On the personal side of the episode we give a big shout out to the Sounders for making another MLS Cup and ask Nick about Halloween in London.

Ep065: $1Billion to walk away

Ep065 kicks off with the story from WeWork this week and their founder Adam Neumann being offered $1Billion to leave the company. Our conversation develops into more about corporate responsibly to its employees and the changes in business culture to provide value rather than drive profit. We also review last night’s Founders Live Seattle event, part of Seattle Startup Week, with the winners and honorable mentions to the companies that presented. Thanks for listening every week to the show, we appreciate you!

Ep064: Life & Death

Nick and Conner created this show for moments like this. To document the unexpected journey of life from a personal and professional perspective. We mostly talk about entrepreneurship from a professional perspective, but after the passing of Nick’s father this past week, we do the show in honor of him. Nick reflects on the lessons learned from his father and how that pushes him forward to live with purpose and pursue his goals.

Ep061: Disruption of the Music Industry

This week’s episode takes a little bit of time to get going as Conner & Nick catch up about their lives in the first quarter of the show but eventually they get into the conversation about the changing music industry and the renaissance that’s happened over the last two decades with the evolution of streaming services. From Spotify and Pandora still shining in the limelight as platforms for new artist to get discovered, we discuss how these services have created a more fair playing field for everyone involved.

Ep059: mystery date planning app & our favorite brand

This week there was a lot of hype around a seattle startup launch called Mystery which curates exclusive date itineraries for its users. We discuss whether we would use a service like this and what we think of their business model. The second topic is about our favorite brands. A recent poll found that millennials favorite brand is Amazon, Apple and Nike (in that order) and we talk about how relevant these are to our lives. Enjoy the show!
