I recently sat down with Melissa Guller on the official Teachable podcast, Everything is Teachable. Teachable is the online learning platform we use to deliver all our programs.

In this episode, we talked about why I believe pre-produced content isn’t necessarily the best approach for online courses of any size. I made my most forceful case for why “live” courses, delivered through videocalls to cohorts of students, is a far more effective, profitable, and fun way to deliver online courses, for instructors and students alike.

I also shared the story of how my initial product – a book club – eventually turned into a workshop and then an online course, and how I look at creativity practically instead of mythically.
