Earlier this year, David from Founders did a show with the guys from the “Acquired” podcast and it was an amazing episode. It was nearly three hours long, but I didn’t want it to end. In fact, near the end, David jokingly suggested to the other guys “let’s do this again next week“.
While I know he was kidding, my first thought was “yes, please”. That would be amazing! However, I don’t think it would work.
The work makes the conversation
What made that long episode so special was the way all of them were able to refer back to episodes they’ve done in the past, pulling in ideas and quotes from those. The immense amount of work they’ve put in (both of their podcasts have hundreds of episodes) is what lead to this conversation.
I have no doubt that a weekly chat between all of them would be great, but it’s the work they put in every week on their shows that makes that kind of conversation possible. I get a lot out of their regular shows, and those shows are what give them the insights that lead to great conversations.
I hope they do another joint chat at some point, but for now I’m more than happy to have their regular shows continue to show up in my podcast app.
If you have the time, that long episode they did can be found here, and it’s well worth a listen.
