podcasts for Startups & entrepreneurs
Podcasting has become an important way that startups, independents, and entrepreneurs explore creative ideas to build community, raise visibility, and hook new business. And for that reason, The Mill is the home of the awesome Shine Insurance Podcasting Studio in Bloomington, Indiana. Our members produce some terrific podcasts here. Subjects range from how technology is changing the music industry, for instance, to the legendary world of Tékumel. In addition, The Mill produces our own podcasts, on topics for startups and entrepreneurs.
Like a Glove is The Mill’s podcast for startups about product-market fit (PMF). PMF is one of the most important and least discussed aspects of startup success. Entrepreneurs talk frankly how they found PMF and how they navigate the often-winding path of developing products and services to provide maximum value.

You have to continue to engage with those customers and your trusted partners to iterate your product, even when you’re in the market. Because just because you found a fit today, it doesn’t mean tomorrow some kid in Palo Alto hasn’t come up with something that’s even better than what you’ve got, and he’s already knocking on the door of your customers.
Trying to boil the ocean, trying to sell their product to literally everybody–that’s obviously not the most effective way to go about it. I really want to see a company that is clearly thinking about that beachhead market or target market, and knows who really is feeling this pain the most, that they’re solving, and how they’re going to specifically target those customers.
You can have all of those policies. You can have all of those ideas. And people do want them and they respect them. And that matters. . . . But what they really want is to be inspired by what they’re living in. They want to know that there’s a future that is exciting
