Of his usual rotation of four or five podcasts, Michael Quill has a favorite: NPR’s “How I Built This.”
Host Guy Raz brings on some of the biggest names in business, delving into topics such as innovation, entrepreneurship and business management, said Quill, director of marketing at Racine-based Affinity Strategic Marketing Inc.
Notable guests have included Herb Kelleher of Southwest Airlines, Daniel Meyer of Shake Shack, Brian Chesky of Airbnb, Julia Hartz of Eventbrite and Eileen Fischer of fashion brand Eileen Fischer.
Quill appreciates the intersection of great storytelling and business insights, and Raz’s enthusiasm, positive energy and thought-provoking questions draw the listener in.
“Since my mantra is, ‘we never stop learning,’ there is always an insight to bring into my work life from it,” he said.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the podcast’s Resilience Series has featured business owners and entrepreneurs who are adapting their companies.
