Podcast Q&A

Why did you start this show?

We started the podcast as a way to meet interesting people when we moved in Austin in 2021. We noticed a gap in the podcast space where discussions often centered around the "cool company of the week," but seldom touched on the wider narrative of regional innovation. We sought to fill this void by creating a platform that goes beyond spotlighting individual companies, instead focusing on how the Austin region is evolving into the next innovation powerhouse.

What do you hope listeners gain from listening to your show?

We aim to provide three key insights through our podcast. First, we delve into Austin's transformation into the next superstar innovation hub, offering an inside look at the region's evolution. Second, we provide perspectives on the mechanics of building robust ecosystems, using Austin as a real-world case study. Lastly, we discuss broader trends and technologies, positioning Austin as a window into the wider innovative world.

Which episode should someone start with?

Begin with our first episode with Professor John Butler for a comprehensive history of Austin's innovation ecosystem. This lays the groundwork to understand Austin's transformative journey. Then, listen to "The Tech Tipping Point" with Brett Hurt and William "whurley" Hurley. This episode delves into the pivotal convergence of technologies like AI and quantum computing, and highlights Austin's role in shaping these global trends.
