Joseph Gordon-Levitt with Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh
Ever bring your family to Burning Man?
Sorry, let me back up. A bit of context: The Talkhouse Podcast spent a fantastic weekend in Las Vegas last month at Life Is Beautiful Music and Art Festival. We put on two live Talkhouse tapings as part of their comedy lineup: Nikki Glaser x Bachelor Nation superstar Kaitlyn Bristowe, and Fred Armisen x Chris Redd x Portugal. The Man (which'll be released as a podcast soon). We also hosted a live talk under the fest's Ideas banner, featuring legendary entrepreneur Tony Hsieh (CEO of Zappos) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (insanely famous actor, founder of HitRecord).
The two friends take a heady dive into the question of what collaboration will look like in the future. Along the way we hear about parallels between artistic and entrepreneurial creativity; how the '80s show MacGyver shaped Tony's business philosophy; and, yep, taking your family to Burning Man.
Today’s show was recorded at Life Is Beautiful by Logan Shields and Mark Yoshizumi, and at Hook and Fade Studios in Brooklyn by our co-producer Mark Yoshizumi.
The Talkhouse Podcast’s theme song was composed and performed by The Range.
