Speaker 1: Hello.

Maggie: Hello.

Matt: Hello.

Speaker 1: So we're going to do, this as a podcast about a podcast, about a podcast, which is really cool. You know Maggie obviously, Maggie is a celebrity host of Build podcasts. She hates it, but I just told her her download numbers they're legit. Then we have Matt. Probably you've seen Matt's face around if you have seen any of our content over time.

Maggie: The original face crosstalk-

Speaker 1: The guy with the beard.

Matt: The guy with the beard.

Speaker 1: Yeah. Matt used to do a lot of videos and everything. He's the guy with the beard. But what we're doing is we're taking a new approach. We have all these amazing shows like Seeking Wisdom is so cool to me because we have all these different shows and all these smart people at Drift who could host them and talk about different stuff. So Maggie has been killing it with the Build podcast, leaving Ops podcast behind the scenes for you Ops nerds out there. We have a Growth podcast which we're going to talk about debuting. But basically what we're going to do is use the Seeking Wisdom feed. We're going to have dedicated feeds in your favorite podcast app. So what do you use? What does Maggie use?

Maggie: Seeking Wisdom, not Seeking Wisdom, Spotify yes crosstalk.

Speaker 1: What do you use? You're definitely not a big, big... You're like some weird app nobody's ever heard of.

Matt: I just pull down on my iPhone and I search podcasts and crosstalk.

Speaker 1: You're not subscribed, you just... You go to the podcasts app?

Matt: Yeah. It's just crosstalk.

Speaker 1: Well, I would have never guessed that you would be the classic podcast out of the box guy. Okay, Spotify. Good choice. So Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Pocket Casts, whatever, that's where all the podcasts are going to be. So this is a big day because... Give it up for Maggie.

Maggie: Thank you.

Speaker 1: Maggie is graduating out of the Seeking Wisdom feed and she now has her own dedicated feed, which you can find on all your podcasts by searching for Build.

Maggie: Yep.

Speaker 1: Right?

Maggie: Yep.

Speaker 1: We'll find a way to get that right from optimization perspective. But we'll also put the link in the show notes to Maggie's new feed.

Maggie: So please subscribe.

Speaker 1: Yeah. This is going to be a quick promo. Give me like, what have you learned and what's next? What do you want to do?

Maggie: I've learned a ton just being able to speak to so many interesting different leaders in products and trying to figure out how they did with what they do and how they got where they got so that I can steal all their secrets and do it myself.

Speaker 1: Cool.

Maggie: Then share it with our listeners. So hopefully more of that lots of good new guests coming on. Then I'm hoping to do some more real life, how we're building products, what we're doing, what lessons we're taking in and testing out on our own.

Speaker 1: I love it.

Maggie: Yeah.

Speaker 1: Maggie, I think it's cool because it start off as this little idea and you just gone, just gone with it. Now there's an audience, a bunch of product. Because product people don't want to listen to me talk about marketing. Sometimes-

Maggie: Sometimes, yeah.

Speaker 1: ...there's a little crossover but it's nice to isolate that. So I'm sure there's a lot of people that are like," Thank God, they finally moved it out."

Maggie: Yeah.

Speaker 1: Matt, you're going to host the Growth show.

Matt: Growth, it's coming.

Speaker 1: What's it about?

Matt: It's all about-

Speaker 1: You've already recorded a million episodes.

Matt: Yeah, I've got a bunch. They're all lined up, they're ready to go.

Speaker 1: Yeah.

Matt: It's going to be all about what is growth from tactics of how do you run experiments, what should you be thinking about to interviewing people who have done amazing things. If you ever tried to cancel audible, I'm sure you got caught in that like, don't go, don't go, here's another thing. Those are the people the ones that build those sorts of experiences.

Speaker 1: Have you interviewed that person?

Matt: I haven't yet, crosstalk but if they're listening then I want to talk to you.

Speaker 1: I think you also could do, it'd be fun to do episodes about that stuff even if you don't talk to the person. Which is you do a 10 minute episode breaking down audibles, cancellation loop and why you can't do it.

Matt: Yeah, a deep dive on that.

Speaker 1: Why does nobody ever get mad at them though? I don't see hate tweet from tweets from people that are like I can't unsubscribe from crosstalk-

Matt: Well, because you just got three free months.

Speaker 1: Okay. So I love it. So we're going to debut. Matt and Growth podcast will be in this main Seeking Wisdom feed for 30 days. We set Maggie up for success a little bit. We gave her months in there, we're going to give you 30 days crosstalk.

Matt: 30 days. I have 30 days to prove myself. All right. So check it out, go listen to Matt and Growth. Keep giving six stars for Maggie and Build and it's only the beginning of Build. She even let me go on the Build podcast.

Maggie: Yeah. crosstalk subscribe to hear what I get from DG.

Matt: Once a quarter I'm going to go on that podcast maybe.

Maggie: All right, yeah.

Matt: Then DC and I will continue doing the thing on the main Seeking Wisdom which you know is a combination of lecturing me, rants and book reviews and some other stuff and this is real- time feedback. All right, right here.

Maggie: Thanks.

Matt: crosstalk see you.
