The previous episode of Hack the Process marked the end of the first season. At this point, I thought it would be a good idea to take an episode to review what I’ve discussed with the different guests, and share a little more about what my motivation was to create this podcast and put it out into the world. I’ll also tell you a little bit about what I was expecting from this podcast, and compare it to what actually came out. (I’ll give you a hint: it was a delightful surprise.)
Thanks to all the Season One Guests
First of all, I want to thank all my guests from the first season: Tracy DeLuca, Adam Siddiq, Pace Smith, Paula Jenkins, Malek Banoun, Vinay Patankar, Alex De Simone, Andrew Nance, Ron Lichty, Ankit Shah, Hampton Catlin, Tara Byrne, and Ryan Waggoner. I don’t know if you fully understood what you were getting yourselves into when we started, but I appreciate each of you being so candid and open with our interviews. Your generosity and honesty made the season what it was.
What’s In This Episode?
One of the things I like to bring to my work no matter where I’m working or what type of project I take on is the notion that it’s valuable to reflect–on a regular basis–on what you’ve accomplished, and think about how you might want to move forward based on that. I’m taking this episode of Hack the Process as my opportunity to reflect on what I’ve done so far after one season, and what I hope I’ve been able to provide to listeners.
If you’ve been following the show, this episode will be an opportunity to learn how each of the guests on Hack the Process was selected, and remind yourself about the insights, stories, and ideas they shared. If you’re a new listener, this will be a chance to find out a little bit about the people we met in the previous episodes so you can decide if you want to subscribe and go back into the first season archives to take a listen to anyone in particular while the episodes are still available.
Either way, I hope you’ll enjoy hearing more about why I decided to do this, and what I’m learning along the way. If you feel motivated to share some of your own experiences with the show, please leave a comment below, or on iTunes.
