Daniel Pollard – HxV
01:37:29
Daniel Pollard HXV Atlanta

I sat down with Atlanta DJ and Producer HxV and had an inspiring and emotional conversation.  He grew up fast, spinning in clubs by age 15, and heavily abusing alcohol and drugs. He was immersed in a dangerous lifestyle that led to dysfunctional relationships and near-death overdoses.

He got sober in 2012 and his career flourished. He toured the world and collaborated with artists like T.I. , Diplo, Lil Jon, and The Weeknd.

The unexpected turn of events in this episode was retelling the search for his friend Nilan, AKA SpeakerFoxx, in December of last year.

Joystick Game Bar – Brandon and Johnny
01:09:30

Brandon Ley and Johnny Martinez opened Joystick Game Bar in Atlanta Georgia back in 2012. They wanted to create a unique environment of creative drinks, board games, old school video games, and cool conversations. Joystick has become a staple in what is now a bustling Edgewood Ave in the Old Fourth Ward.  In addition, the two men opened Georgia Beer Garden across the street with over 100 labels local beers to choose from.

This conversation is a good hour of chat about drinks, video games, nerd based theme nights, and the camaraderie of business owners on Edgewood Ave.

Today’s episode is a conversation with Jami Becker from the recent Terminus Conference in Atlanta.

Jami’s bio on her company’s website reads “Jami’s DNA bleeds visionary thinker, architect and maker. Her strategic design process seeks the subtle balance between imagination and the earth-tethered, using evolving technical tools as implements to express ideas and facilitate more efficient processes.”

I don’t know what that means either, so let’s dive into several topics including

  • How she was part of creating the original world of the SIMS game.
  • Various startups she’s created over the years.
  • Finding out how technology and business can improve (or destroy) our world.
  • Dispelling VR myths.
  • Gardening.
  • Running.
  • The utility/futility of business cards.
