“So, what we ended up doing differently at Breaker, or on the Breaker App, is that we allow you to sort of follow people as in a social network. You can like episodes. You can send them to people.” (05:06)

“What’s interesting about Breaker is that we see, from the first month to the second month of using Breaker, the number of shows that a user subscribes to doubles. So, it means that they’re discovering new content.” (16:07)

“It’s kind of our goal, for this year, to better connect podcasters with their audience.” (18:04)

“We want to make money when podcasters make money.” (28:47)

“We originally pitched Breaker as Netflix for podcasts in that we’re gonna make exclusive content and charge for it. But we’re also, at the same time, letting some other companies sort of try that model first to see how that goes.” (29:24)

“I’m really passionate about connecting people on the Internet so I’ve work a lot in blogging and social media.” (41:54)
