Karthik's questions were thoughtful, well-researched, and drove to a singular, important point. He's clearly capable of going deep with big thinkers. His conversations flow naturally, he remains light even when topics are heavy.

I particularly enjoyed Karthik's ability to connect key moments in one's life story, making them relatable to someone new to the conversation.

Karthik is a brilliant interviewer with great questions. I enjoyed every minute of the conversation and it was just brilliant. It felt more like a conversation with an old friend. I'd absolutely would recommend the show to everyone and have started to do so!

Thanks a ton for helping me narrate my story! Talking to you also helped me define the structure and focus for a TEDx talk.

Karthik is a great interviewer that really took the time to go deep and find out the WHY and every more for his listeners.

He was not just all business, but understood that being successful wasn't just a $$$$$ amount. He really wanted to find the gold for his community to help and assist them through this interview.

Love the interview series for the way he extracts insight and learnings about so many interesting people!

Wonderful!

What I love about the podcast is that Karthik allows the conversation to go where it goes. He doesn’t come in with the same basic questions, and each time, he brings himself to the interview fully, probing for interesting angles and uncovering things other people leave hidden. Well done!

How I went from ZERO to 200,000+ podcast downloads in less than 1 year?

Karthik Vijayakumar, August 26, 2019

Here’s a story of contrasts...

10 years back, I used to run a website for the city I lived in.

It was an information portal that got some pretty crazy traffic...

The biggest event in the city was a 3-month “music festival”, and the website traffic would explode during that time.

So we figured, why not create an app to help people enjoy the music season?

It would be easy, we thought. How long could it take to make an app? A week? Two weeks?

A week went by. App was done.

Then another week. Spreading the word.

Then another month. Beating the drums even more.

Next thing we know, we’ve sunk a thousand man hours into it all.

Anyway, once we got it done, we braced ourselves for the avalanche.

We put up the up. Hundreds of thousands of site visitors saw the link.

And we got...

93 downloads.

(And 15 of them were friends and family.)

Determined, we went and pumped money into ads. Got newspapers and blogs to feature the app.

And we still barely broke a few 100s.

No matter what we did, nothing worked.

Turn the clock 7 years forward.

I was on a career break, and launched a podcast.

Bang! And we got...

157 downloads on Day #1.

By end of month #1 I had 700 downloads for my first episode.

And guess what the numbers looked in 11 months?

208,308 downloads!

I was totally surprised!🤩

Why was the music app a FLOP and the podcast a HIT?
