Internet Media Magnates: Jill & Spencer Wright of the Pod Mill in Salt Lake City, Part 1
Here’s a little bit of the snake swallowing its own tail. We’re introducing a couple in podcasting. They’re also the first couple we’ve interviewed whose business together was spawned by someone else’s trouble with the law. We’re talking to Jill & Spencer Wright of The Pod Mill in Salt Lake City. These two had careers in medicine, but ended up in business together with a thriving operation on the frontier of a fledgling industry. It also happened more or less by accident. Who doesn’t love having their vacation disrupted by a business partner’s legal trouble? After some soul searching and lots of discussion, they decided to take over the business…only to have most of the clients leave. We’re going to hear how these two turned a place with a boys’ club feel into a professional operation in downtown Salt Lake. And how it gives them not only a unique joy, but a particular freedom with their special-needs son. And where do fly fishing and a May-December romance fit in all this?
