By Alex Blumberg, original from This American Life, comes a podcast on starting a business.
The first season documents Alex starting his own media company — Gimlet Media. And then subsequent seasons follow other businesses.
What I found enthralling was how close his experiences (and others on the show) were to some elements of starting a new Christian ministry: the awkward interactions with major donors who give mixed messages about what they think you should do and make you feel small and silly; the seaons of profound self-doubt; the peculiar dynamics between you and your partner; the need to make complex inuitive ethical decisions about what you stand for and so on.
It's well worth subscribing I reckon: http://ift.tt/1MHZ7mm
