I’m excited to have my new friend Dave Finocchio on the podcast. I met Dave on my golf trip to Ireland, and we hit it off immediately (at least I thought so). He stands out because he’s focused and insanely smart. He’s a founder of the Bleacher Report, which was acquired for north of $200M, and is now working on The Cool Down – his attempt to build a mainstream climate brand. Dave’s taken everything he’s learned in sports and media over the years and is applying it to climate change.
We have a wide-ranging conversation on what it was like to start a media company back in the day, and what it takes now. We discuss new trends that are emerging in media, like TikTok, his investment in 5-Iron Golf, and a whole lot more. Enjoy!
