Claudia and Madison started three years ago to bring more people in the room where it happens. As two young woman in technology, living in the heart of Silicon Valley, we knew we had unique access to generation-defining founders. At the time, we were embarking on pivotal career shift, Madison from product into venture and Claudia from product into becoming founder. It’s been almost three years since we launched our first season, with Coda’s own as an initial guest. Today, we’ve had over 70 guests and recently launched our eighth season. We’ve scaled our distribution, hosted dozens of events, and brought on sponsors all while growing a community of builders. It is core to our ethos to empower individuals and ecosystems with the tools and resources to build a better future. If you’ve recently started or are considering launching a podcast, this guide is for you!
