I got to podcasting early – did one for over a year and stopped – not quite sure why. I suspect it was because I hate being tied into a routine. Fast forward ten years and I am ready to take on podcasting again. My new podcast effort is called “Picocast” to accompany my interview series, published on Pi.co.
Picocast will be a series of conversations with folks I think are interesting, have amazing insights and have pulse on the present. These conversations can be with anyone – from founders of companies, academics to other observers of culture. While I will try and do two conversations a month, there will be months with more and some weeks where there aren’t any. I don’t promise that the quality will always be good; but I do promise you that you will enjoy the conversations.
We are kicking off the series with a conversation with Jian DeLeon. We might not have heard of him in tech land, but Jian is a noted fashion journalist and a trend forecaster. He is based in Brooklyn, New York. He is currently the Senior Menswear Editor at trend forecasting agency WGSN. He has contributed to publications like Style.com, Man of the World, High Snobiety, Business of Fashion and New York Magazine. Jian and I are talking about recent fashion trends, what color is going to be hot and what the hell is up with alt-leisure and the ongoing sneaker madness.
