Excited for this! Do you have a specific direction/vision for what you want The Rachet to turn into? Also, tell us about the naming process?

@juliaonken hey there... I listen to a lot of podcasts and one of the things I noticed was that many tech podcasts were very good at discussing the business side of tech, but bad at addressing the human element. My hope is to get people to be more open about challenges they've faced and to discuss their path to working in tech, rather than just the details of their most recent exit/investment/fundraise. As for the name - I bought the domain on a whim months ago before I knew what I was going to do with it. I'd also been talking about doing a podcast for a while... so when I set to actually working on it, that name seemed as good as any. I liked that it was a little different, a little irreverent, but while it might have a negative connotation I think few people will get too hung up on the meaning, either in the investing/venture capital use or the urban dictionary definition.

@ryanlawler congrats on the new show! Looking forward to listening... Love the direction of the podcast (from the earlier comment) about tech podcasts being "bad at addressing the human element. My hope is to get people to be more open about challenges they've faced and to discuss their path to working in tech" maybe one day I'll be a guest 🙇
