Charles Max Wood goes into the origin story of his podcasting career and how it relates to his programming career. He starts with his interest from a young age in technology and his dreams of being a radio DJ. He moves quickly through college and into his first job after college where he was introduced to podcasts by a co-worker who had purchased an iPod.
He calls out several mentors like Gregg Pollack, Eric Berry, Nate Hopkins, Cliff Ravenscraft, David Brady, Dave Jackson, and many more.
He then explains what he'd do differently if he were starting today.
