Today, we have Jarod Latch and Tim Baier joining us on the podcast. Jarod and Tim are co-founders of Spiracle Media – a video content agency working with businesses to craft a better story to share. Jarod and Tim started Spiracle Media in 2011 while still working at different local news stations. They lived in a house together with a couple of other guys – Funday Monday was not a welcome addition to their neighborhood. It took time living together but they finally came to a decision to start what is now Spiracle Media. Not surprisingly, the business started off with a different idea/concept. It wasn’t until a surprise meeting with an existing client – listen for the story about a birthday cake– that the company turned into what it is today. Tim and Jarod talk about several tough conversations they had to have as the conversation continued to grow. Tim also shares his first startup – a failure – and what it taught him. Jarod further expanded on the discussion as we learn his position was eliminated back in 2009 as a result of staff cuts in the last recession. As such, we dive into the discussion and topic of failure some and what it really means. Listen in as we dive back into the early days of Spiracle to learn more about the original business plan and learn about their growth and expansion in Austin and potentially other fast-growing cities in the coming years. We also dig into how two – or at the time, three – guys were able to execute a business strategy when they were ‘merely’ coming from the news world. What comes of it is a great discussion with two founders who are quickly growing and expanding their business into new markets. Hope you enjoy today’s podcast with Spiracle Media.
