Along the way, Nick and his guests will also give listeners recommendations on the shows they should be checking out.

To kick things off, Nick tries to build a (very) brief picture of where the podcast world is right now with the help of "Team Coco’s" Adam Sachs and Earios co-founder Priyanka Mattoo. He also gets advice on how to be a decent podcast host from a great podcast host: "Death Sex and Money’s" Anna Sale.

Listen above and subscribe today.
