The Live Podcast Booth: Day 1

Twin Cities Startup Week 2020 is in full swing, and The Live Podcast Booth is firing up for tomorrow’s stream! For Thursday, September 10’s edition of the event, we’re welcoming three awesome guests, but let’s dig into the theme of the booth — and future podcast?! — a bit.

The Podcast, our flagship show, does a wonderful job of seeking out innovative, entrepreneurial, and technological individuals. With Kevin McArdle and Jac Stark at the wheel, each episode is an entertaining look into the best and brightest of our tech and startup community.

For this year’s live podcast booth, we’re switching things up just a bit. Hosted by Alex Skjong, the show will be welcoming audio and video creators for a little host-to-host action. We want to highlight the highlighters; the folks in our community who are creating high-quality podcast content across all the entire spectrum of Minnesota.

That said, here are the first three guests!
