Kevin Rose on the next wave of consumer apps and what’s happening in the podcast industry

Kevin Rose is someone I’ve known for quite a while. I think it was 11 years ago we first worked together when he was starting out as an intern. The promise I saw in him at that time has undoubtedly blossomed into an amazing set of skills, insights, and passions that have contributed to the world in truly meaningful ways.

Kevin is a serial entrepreneur. He’s best known for founding Digg and Revision3. He also serves on the True Ventures team with me and many others, funding startups that capture the imagination. These days, Kevin is no small player – he’s been featured on the cover of Inc. Magazine, Bloomberg, Businessweek, RedHerring, and lots more.

Since it had been a while between conversations, I invited Kevin on the show to talk about the future wave of exciting consumer apps, what it will take to see them come about AND the buzz that’s happening around podcasting these days. The podcast industry has grown leaps and bounds in recent days and both of us are excited about the potential we see.

Join me for this fun conversation with a good friend.

[The OmShow Podcast] What will 2019 bring?

After a bit of a hiatus, I am back with a new episode of my occasional podcast series, The Om Show. In this first episode for 2019, I chat with Primer CEO Sean Gourley and MetaMarkets founder Michael Driscoll about what comes in 2019. We discuss everything from machine learning to data to privacy and what’s next for artificial intelligence. Of course, there is some Facebook thrown in for good measure.
