Do you remember what life was like before the Great Quarantine of 2020?
I know, I know. It’s hard to think back that far.
But let me tell you, it was awesome. You saw people who weren’t your immediate family, you got tacos with them, you shook hands, you maybe even hugged if you’re a hugger (I am).
The last wealth management industry event I attended when life was still like that was the T3 Advisor Conference in San Diego.
I was talking to my pal, Torie Happe from FIX Flyer, when one of our other pals, Tina Powell of C-Suite Social Media fame, came by and snapped our photo.
She asked what we were working on. At the time, we were discussing the awesome forts you could create with the hotel lobby’s pillows and seat cushions (we both have kids, so it’s not weird for us to be thinking about building forts).
Then later, Tina tweeted us a photoshopped photo and said it looked like we should do a podcast together.
So, today, we’re launching a podcast. It’s called TacoTech.
Why? Because those two words combine two of our favorite things. We love tacos. We love fintech. So now we’re going to talk about them on the regular.
I’m sure you’re curious about a few things. Here’s some facts, or as we used to call them on the Internet of old, FAQs.
We love fintech. We love tacos. We put them together. But more than that, we’ll be rating new fintech on a scale of tacos to show how much we love it. Got ideas for how we should create our taco scale? Hit us up on Twitter to let us know.
What self-respecting podcast doesn’t have a Twitter? Quarantine isn’t stopping us from being digital first. Follow us here.
The first few episodes are just us talking, but we are having guests soon. And they’ll be big guests. Many people are saying they’re the biggest podcast guests they’ve ever seen.
If you’re involved with fintech and you want to come talk to us about your favorite tacos and the tech you’re passionate about, follow us on Twitter and hit those DMs.
Did Isaac Newton know what he was doing when he discovered gravity? Honestly, I don’t know. My perception of him is still mostly based on an apple hitting his head.
That doesn’t matter. What matters is we wanted to start a podcast to have fun. If you start listening along with us now, you’ll be there with us as we figure it out and make it better.
Number one, it’s short. You’ve got 15 minutes in your day to listen to us ramble. Number two, I think we’ve got some good hot takes to toss out of our podcast oven. Number three, it’s going to be fun.
Too many business podcasts are 100% focused on “efficiency gains” and “daily routines” and that’s fine, but that’s been done.
We’re going to focus on relationships in business and have fun and laugh a lot while we do it.
Right now, TacoTech is up on Spotify.
As it publishes to more platforms, we’ll let you know.
