Good Question & Answer 1:
Jim Barrood: Talk to us about how you got to where you are now, Ryan?
Ryan Estes: You bet. So, 12 years ago, I started Denver’s first social media marketing company called Talk launch. And about the same time, I was pivoting careers. I had a career in music, and I also had two young babies. And, you know, the local music industry is not necessarily the fulcrum of commerce. So, I had some tough decisions to make. I kind of left my music career. And, as a part of what I was doing with my marketing agency, I kind of fell in love with podcasting really early on. So, I started producing my own podcasts. And as that kind of matured, I introduced podcasting to my business. I’d launched the Denver business podcast to some decent success. And I’ve just basically been involved in podcasting ever since. A couple of years ago, my co-founder and I were having coffee, and we met because of podcasting and decided that podcasting would be something fun to work on together. So, we kind of sketched out on a napkin that Kitcaster would have some initial success on the pilot program. So, we wrapped a brand around it. Two years later, here we are.
Additional Topics Discussed:
- The power dynamics between doctors and patients.
- The importance of patient advocacy.
- How does podcasting help entrepreneurs and executives market and brand themselves and their companies to grow.
- Tips and advice on starting a business.
