For 3 weeks now, I’ve had a standing date with Tony Bacigalupo, one of my dearest friends and the co-founder of New Work City, which I happily consider to be Indy Hall’s “sister space” in Manhattan. Once a week, we call into a conference line for a 30 minute chat where we talk about anything we want…but mostly stuff related to coworking.
Technically it’s not a “show”, as we’ve decided on no guests and no post-production, but instead a window into a weekly dialogue that we agreed we should have been having in the first place. We talk about observations, ideas, and experiences of the week. And if all goes well, we will find some topics that we disagree on and get to debate.
Tony is one of my friends with whom I always have great conversations with. Sometimes they’re inspiring. Sometimes they’re refreshing. Often times they are lots of fun. No matter what, time spent together is time well spent. In the wake of his re-opening of New Work City, and my re-launching of ChoiceShirts.com, we decided that setting aside some time every week to talk…and then sharing the contents of those discussions, would be fun and valuable.
We also wanted to use it as an opportunity to talk about some of the meatier — and maybe even more risque — topics related to coworking that the mainstream media and most blogs simply aren’t talking about.
Whether you’re a coworking space owner, a coworker, or even someone working 9-5 and hoping for a better workday tomorrow, I think you’ll find things of interest for you. No topic is off limits, and we’re 100% candid and honest. Remember, this is a phone call, NOT a show.
So if you’re interested in what it’s like to sit down with the founders of a couple of coworking spaces and eavesdrop on their conversation, I hope you give The Coworkers a listen.
