I’m curious where the idea for Disco came from? You’re a great podcaster and communicator, so was it just the next logical step?

And a follow up question. What hurdles did you encounter getting that business off the ground?

Yup! I'd say it was a logical next step. I love audio and I love education and helping people move forward in their career and this felt like a great way to continue on that journey. I'd say the biggest hurdle getting the business off the ground was picking what community and what type of content to focus on. Producing audio courses means you can cover any topic, and I tried and tested a few that didn't work before I landed on machine learning and that one seemed to stick!
