Season two of Inspirefest podcast set to drop on 23 October
After the success of the inaugural season of Inspirefest: The Podcast, science writer Claire O’Connell and the Bureau production team are back for a second season. The Digital Hub is also returning as an anchor sponsor for the second year.
The previous season featured 11 of the biggest names to descend on Dublin for the 2017 event, including software developer and diversity advocate Tracy Chou, and musician and robot obsessive Ana Matronic.
The second season is set to drop on Tuesday 23 October, including even more guests, with a total of 15 episodes set to air. An episode will then be released every following Tuesday, starting with the ‘investment rockstar’ that is Arlan Hamilton.
In the space of a few years, she went from homelessness to managing Backstage Capital, a $5m fund for underrepresented founders. That umbrella covers women, people of colour and the LGBTQ community.
Earlier this year, she said she and Backstage Capital were raising $36m to address the anomaly whereby only 0.2pc of venture capital funding goes to black women.
