In a delightfully confusing move, our guest this week is none other than Scott Galloway. No, not the host of this podcast. The other Scott Galloway. Or is our Scott Galloway the other Scott Galloway?
Anyway, this episode features two Scott Galloways for the price of one.
You might recognize our guest as the NYU professor who replied to a student’s rude email with a legendary virtual tongue-lashing. Or maybe you’ve seen his videos for L2 Inc on YouTube analyzing brand strategy and marketing. His new book, “The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google,” looks at how these companies came to infiltrate our lives so pervasively. You can pick it up on October 3.
Our guest Darby Camp has been featured Grey’s Anatomy, The Leftovers and Big Little Lies, the latter of which received a staggering 16 Emmy nominations—and took home five—for its first season. Darby plays Reese Witherspoon’s sassy, wise-beyond-her-years daughter in Big Little Lies, and she more than holds her own among the star-studded cast.
You’ve seen the bottle. You know the name. This week, we speak with the man behind Tito’s Handmade Vodka: Tito Beveridge. Drilling for Texas Tea turned out to be a bust, but he struck the mother lode with a different type of liquid altogether, one more commonly associated with Russia than the American southwest. It’s a story of perseverance, and today, twenty years later, Tito’s Handmade Vodka is flying off the shelves. Host Scott Galloway also took the opportunity to honor our guest by taking three shots of the 80 proof, corn based liquor in the middle of the workday. Cheers!
