A few weeks ago, @schneidertobias visited Product Hunt HQ (proof!). We hid in the back of the office and chatted for an hour about how Product Hunt began, the impact virtual reality (and tech in general) will have on our lives/relationships, and I shared some hints at what we're building now. Thanks for having me, Tobias. Now it's time to have you on Product Hunt LIVE. 😉

@rrhoover So happy to have had you on the show Ryan! Was fun talking to you and the hour went by way too quickly. I'll see you soon again, and I hope everyone else is enjoying this episode. Thanks for listening!

@schneidertobias @rrhoover This was a great interview. Ryan's got some great points (which I've experienced myself) about learning things subconsciously in college that you end up applying later on, learning on the job/in the moment, and being open to new opportunities. I'm not at all surprised that the idea of community came up ;D

Really enjoyed this episode - still not sure what plane of reality it took place on... Interested to hear that @rrhover is from Eugene. My favorite investment (can I say favorite? I'm sure the others won't read the comments) is in Eugene. I'll introduce you through DM shortly.
