My new podcast: Keep Going

“When you’re going through Hell, keep going.”

This is a podcast about failure and how it breeds success. Every week we will talk to amazing people who have done amazing things yet, at some point, experienced failure. By exploring their experiences we can learn how to build, succeed, and stay humble. Our theme music is by Policy AKA Mark Buchwald.

The story of POSDT

I spelled conceived wrong.

The next few hours are tedious with the sound of truck tires hitting a single metal plate in the street outside.

And then we hear the distant sirens, high and lonesome in the empty streets.
