Accidental podcasters (their words not mine) Brett StClair and Michael Cowen are launching something rather special today – a platform filled with resources for entrepreneurs looking to the future.
After hosting the Futurology podcast on CliffCentral the pair decided they wanted to do more to inspire Africans.
That “more” is launching today in the form of WTFcrowd.
“We took to the task of building WTFcrowd in 60 hours. We tried about a week ago but failed after 15 hours. We went back to the drawing board and tried again this time we completed the build in 60 hours. We are now launching to the public for the second round of 60 hours where we are seeking feedback so we can begin the iteration phase,” StClair and Cowen tell us ahead of the launch.
Over the next eight weeks more podcasts will be added to WTFcrowd with new podcast series being recorded in under 60 hours.
If that sounds like a fast turn-around time that’s because it is. As we learned last week this is how products are developed in Silicon Valley.
At the moment WTFcrowd contains a collection of the best podcasts from the Futurology series, The Singularity series as well as casts from the CX TechFest.
“We are working with a bunch of people who we think do things very well – and they are working to create their different podcasts,” explain the duo.
“Each of our podcastsers should be releasing one new piece of content a week but our focus is really to do more with less, focus on quality and create real value in people’s lives. We will be looking at the length of the shows, the format and the depth of engagement,” Cowen and StClair explain.
The podcasts are available right now for free on the WTFcrowd website.
