Episode #36: Saul Colt – The Smartest Man In The World

Saul Colt is The Smartest Man In The world. Just ask Google. In this exclusive chat we discussed how Saul went from sideburns to a full beard, how the Pope crashed his bar mitzvah, why Pokemon Go will fail, Ghostbusters and, for some reason, my toes.

Welcome! is now out of beta

After more than 30 episodes my podcast, Welcome!, is now out of beta. What does this mean?

Well, before today, the only way to listen to my conversations with some really cool people was through the Girth Radio website, MixCloud or here. As of today, you can now listen to Welcome! on any computer or smartphone from anywhere in the world on your favourite app.

Yes, besides the places mentioned above, Welcome! is also available on iTunes, Google Play Music, Stitcher and TuneIn. You can also subscribe to the podcast via RSS Feed if you’re so inclined.

You might be asking yourselves, what do I do now? Great question! If you haven’t done so, download one of the above apps to your smartphone (or computer). Then go to my show (links are provided above) and subscribe/start listening.

I welcome (see what I did there?) all feedback. In fact, it would be amazing if you could comment and leave a rating (the more starts the merrier!) on the app you use to listen to me. You can also comment below.

Welcome! Season One

Season One of my latest podcast project, Welcome!, is now in the can. Welcome! is designed to showcase conversations with members of Toronto’s creative community. They can be musicians, artists, and even entrepreneurs. Essentially, anyone who lives or works in Toronto that is doing interesting things.

I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing serial entrepreneurs, agency executives, teachers, designers, musicians, and even someone who was running for office in the last federal election.

I’m looking forward to Season Two of Welcome! You can expect to hear from people whom you know. And many that you don’t know. However, there is one thing you can expect: The conversations will shed light on the lives, success and failures of these people. I hope you enjoy this ride as much as I will enjoy bringing it to you.

Remember to follow my episodes of Welcome! on Girth Radio. You can also follow me on the Welcome! MixCloud station.
