The technology podcast for people who challenge conventional wisdom

Stories matter.

We're here to help tell them.

Concept & Format

In this 1v1 conversational podcast, we interview people who have succeeded by thinking differently, so that leaders in technology and/or security can succeed, too. Our guests help the audience challenge conventional wisdom by sharing their own stories about how they went against the grain. 


Tech Done Different is for leaders in technology and security, such as the CTO, CIO, CISO, VP Engineering, Head of Development, Security Architect, and more. It’s also for anyone else that simply wants to understand how successful people have won by thinking differently. 


The audience is looking for insights on how to think differently and do differently. They want to learn from people who have succeeded.

Our guests include gold-medal winning Olympians, Las Vegas headliners, #1 best-selling authors, FBI profilers, ethical hackers, and execs from technology pioneers like Amazon, Netflix, Facebook and more
