#137. is a unique one. It’s Part 2 of a very long conversation I had with Teddy J of the Sail Loot podcast. Teddy and I recorded over Skype when I was up in Toronto two weeks ago and wound up talking for over two and a half hours!

This is unique in that It’s a ‘part 2.’ Teddy and I are releasing these episodes simultaneously on each other’s shows, so to catch Part 1 - in which I spend over 90 minutes talking about my own sailing history and a lot of the aspects of not only the Isbjorn business but also my entrepreneurial inspiration from my dad and my grandfather. So head on over to the Sail Loot podcast - just search Sail Loot in iTunes, or stream online at sailloot.com - and listen to Part 1.

In Part 2 that follows here, I turned the tables on Teddy and spent the next hour talking to him about how he got inspired to go sailing after a trip in Dominica he did with some friends. Ever since then he’s always wondered how people managed to pay for their dreams, and hence the Sail Loot podcast was born. Teddy has over 30 episodes now interviewing a lot of well-known sailors about just how they make their dreams financially viable. Teddy and I also spend some time discussing the technical aspects of podcasting, talking about the gear we use and our production process.

This was one of the most fun two and half hours I’ve ever spent on the phone! Again, be sure to download the Sail Loot podcast to hear me and Teddy in Part 1, and catch Part 2 here! Enjoy!
