I host a podcast about the history of Internet entrepreneurship.
What happens when you take an entrepreneur who loves stories and storytelling, researches Internet businesses, and studies digital media history? He creates a nerdy podcast, of course!
Web Masters is that podcast. It’s a weekly podcast where I teach about entrepreneurship by sharing the stories of the Internet’s most impactful early innovators. Some of the people and stories I’ve featured so far include:

- Chris Heivly @ MapQuest
- Gregg Spiridellis @ JibJab
