On this episode Ryan is joined by Joel Gascoigne, CEO of Buffer, a simple tool manage all your social media accounts. We've been avid users, big fans, and paying customers for years.

In this episode Ryan and Joel talk about...

* Joel's roundabout journey from the UK to the US via Hong Kong and Israel.

* What it's like to manage an 85-person completely distributed team.

* Buffer's extreme transparency and how that endears the company to its customers.

* Why (in a very unorthodox move) Buffer bought out their investors last year.

Of course, Joel also talks about some of his favorite products as well.
