Nathan Baschez (Product Hunt, Gimlet Media) is one of the most prolific people I know, having worked at half a dozen of the coolest startups I can think of, all in just the past ten years. I first met Nathan back in 2012 while we were working at General Assembly in New York City. At the time General Assembly had just acquired Nathan's startup Dash — an early learn to code app much like Codecademy. Since then Nathan has gone on to co-create Product Hunt, launch HardBound (a visual storytelling app), as well as dedicate his talents to Gimlet Media and Substack.

In my chat with Nathan we discuss:

  • How to design a career
  • Strategies for choosing projects
  • Behind the scenes of early days at General Assembly, and Product Hunt
  • What it's like to work at Gimlet Media (home to the Reply All Podcast, Startup, and the CrimeTown Podcast)
  • Tips for staying focused when learning to code for the first time
