Incredibly, this episode marks one year of Black Swan on the BetaKit Podcast Channel. So, what do we do to celebrate?
“I will eat my shirt if they don’t.”
– Rob Kenedi, who will be held to this bet
The best celebrations (to me) involve friends and reflection, which this episode contains in droves. Producer Kattie Laur joins to pepper me and Rob with questions about the genesis and evolution of Black Swan, the craziest story we covered over the past year, stories we still hope to cover, and our plans to wind down a pandemic-focused podcast we all thought would only need to exist for a few weeks.
At Kattie’s urging, we also agreed to answer a select group of listener questions, like the doozy about remote work, and what remote-first companies might come to regret. Rob is firm in the belief that Canadian tech will regret the decision (even Shopify, which is currently headquartered on the Internet, Everywhere), to the point of betting his shirt in the process – now that will be a special episode.
And for me? Well, I’m just filled with general regrets and Jay-Z lyrics. Let’s dig in.
