about this episode

If you’re watching or listening to this show, chances are you’re podcast obsessed. Just like Pandora made it easy to curate your personal radio stations, Swell scours the web for the best podcasts, brings them together into one beautifully designed package (iOS only for now), and learns from your preferences. CEO and cofounder GD (Ram) Ramkumar joins us in advance of his appearance at LAUNCH Mobile & Wearables.

Plus: Shark Tank with Dale Partridge of Sevenly, and Hassan Wardani of just-launched Thrillseeker Adventures. And Jason answers your questions about getting noticed from outside Silicon Valley, and the value of an MBA.
