Taking Risks with Jake Hurwitz

Happy Monday, Let's Talk Sales listeners! On this week's episode, we have on comedian and company founder, Jake Hurwitz! We were excited to have Jake on the show because he is a unique guest for our roster.

In 2015, he and Amir founded Headgum, a comedy podcast network where the two host their hit podcast If I Were You.

They recently launched a dating app called Orion, as well as an ad sales program for podcasts called Gumball.

Jake is based in Brooklyn, NY. We hope you enjoy your conversation!
