Episode 047: Joan Kanner, Co-Founder, Bottom’s Up Bagels / Creator, Fugue App
This is one of 20 interviews recorded in a popup backroom studio at dojo4 during the 10th annual Boulder Startup Week. When it started in 2009, Boulder Startup Week was the first event of its kind, anywhere. Now, Startup Weeks are held around the world. It’s a great example of Boulder’s position on the leading edge of tech — and the future.
Our guest for Episode 47 is Joan Kanner, co-founder and operator of Bottom’s Up Bagels, and creator of the Fugue app. Joan’s based in Baltimore and was in town for Boulder Startup Week to see what we’re up to out here. In our fun and wide-ranging discussion, we get into:
- What sets a good bagel apart from a great one
- The relationship between Food and memory
- Forgetting, and why Joan created the Fugue music app
- The view of Boulder from Baltimore
- A brief history of bagels on the front range according to me
