👋 Hey there, I'm Joe Toste
PODCASTER BY DAY, BASKETBALL COACH BY NIGHT
Welcome to my online home. I curate insightful conversations around technology, leadership, and life. Also, I host a few podcasts - TechTables, TechTablesGov, and The Study. I coach JV high school basketball after "sitting in my gaming chair podcasting," as my daughter calls it.
Folks ask me all the time - "Joe, how did you get into podcasting?" Great question.
My podcast journey with TechTables (spoiler alert, the first four episodes weren't called TechTables) started at CES 2020 in Las Vegas. I had a video camera (that I only knew how to use the power button), no mic, no website, and zero recorded episodes, but in the words of Ted Lasso -
"Taking on a challenge is a lot like riding a horse, isn't it? If you're comfortable while you're doing it, you're probably doing it wrong."
At CES, I interviewed:
- Burton M. Goldfield, CEO of Trinet
- Andy Lowery, ex-CEO & co-founder of RealWear
- Jake Rubin, Founder & CEO at HaptX
- Matt Hammersley, CEO & co-founder at The Novel Effect
The feedback was amazing...
"Joe - you research, ask compelling questions, and are 10x better than the other media folks."
And that's my standard.
Research. Write. Be different. Build relationship. Don't be boring. Add levity.
