We are up to almost 16o Official SaaStr podcasts and there is a small chance you may have missed one or two ? The Top 10 Most Downloaded of 2017 do sort of map to well known brands, although not entirely. But they are a great entry point if you haven’t gotten through many of the podcasts or any of them. The good news is 6 of the top 10 will be speaking at The SaaStr Annual this year! Harry has simply done a tremendous job building the #1 podcast in the industry — by far. Who were the top 10? Let’s take a look! As an important note, all the Top 10 were men, and of those, perhaps zero were from underrepresented backgrounds (I don’t know / not sure). This certainly jumped out to me as I put together this post. We’re proud to
had 60% women and multicultural speakers at the SaaStr Annual this year … but we have much more work on the podcast to achieve our inclusion goals there as well. We didn’t set any inclusion goals for the podcast. If you don’t set any goals, you don’t achieve them. Look for a lot of improvement here in 2018.
