A nice moment from the closing credits of the Surveillance Economy episode of Make Me Smart with Kai and Molly.  I’m not the producer anymore, but I’m still part of the listener community. And hearing from all listeners all over the world was always my favorite part of the show. Or was it the pop sockets? Or that time we all learned that a pony was “just a small horse?” Or all the times Kai sang show tunes in the pre-show?

It’s full of great stories and advice about charting your own creative destiny. One chapter focuses on Tom Merritt, podcast pioneer, my former boss, and the person who taught me how to build the kind of online community that reflects, respects, and amplifies the values of its host. The chapter also includes one of my favorite sentences of all time. See if you can guess which one.
