David Spinks | The hard questions that your boss asks about the community

David Spinks thinks that emotions are important, but insists that we still need numbers to have a common ground with the folks upstairs.

With The Community Show, you feel like having a coffee ☕ or a drink 🍹 with your industry friends.

This “young chick” has no authority! David Spinks, the legend himself comes to the show and she tells him that he is wrong and “only creepy people“ do it, then brings in arguments like “you don’t measure friendships“. David resonates back with “what is the ROI of your mom“, then thinks about social norms and business norms.

Anna immediately builds the tension with sensitive privacy questions and I feel like I have no other option than to take a stupid fanboy hat 🧢 so the show has a protagonist to elevate the guest up.

It is a very intense and fun episode. I am relistening to it for the third time now, as I am typing this text and I am still picking new bits.

David tweeted that he enjoyed The Community Show experience and I am very proud of what we’re able to deliver in the show 🥂.

The only other podcast that I think carries a similar vibe is about money. Alex and Natasha (and their army of producers 🍷) are my role models.
