This is our “life is what happens when you’re making plans” episode…

On episode #5 of Supercasters, we spoke to Radiolab co-founder Mikel Ellcessor. It was chocked full of goodness for everyone who’s growing a paid membership plan. Well... a few weeks later, Mikel reached out to say he couldn’t stop thinking about Supercast-- and now he’s joined the team as Partnerships Lead!

Today, Mikel and Jason Sew Hoy, Co-Founder of Supercast, talk about how it all went down, how to shape the right paid model in 2021, and Mikel's view on the two key things you need to get started with paid memberships.
