Talk about things I never thought would happen — this week’s podcast was sponsored by WeWork. Yes, that is right — this week we taped live from WeWork as part of Minneapolis Startup Week. Thanks to WeWork and Startup Week for all their support.
The gang was also back to full strength, though our voices were a little tested by lingering colds. This week we really got into it. I go on a rant about Wayfair, Anne gets a little risque discussing BuzzFeed’s new toy store concept, Carter pronounces Facebook Portal D.O.A., Swedish financing somehow comes up, and we close with a discussion on why the Amazon GO 3,000 store rumor is 100% real.
