The Dragons recommend Boiling Point PodcastPosted: August 13, 2015
Our Boiling Point Podcast lands on the Dragon’s Den Top 8 Must-Listen List for Entrepreneurs
With a strong nudge from my colleague, good friend and co-host, Greg Hemmings, we embarked on a podcasting journey a little over a year ago (60-ish weekly episodes ago). Greg promised our journey would be fun, interesting and good for business. Well he certainly was prophetic! So much so that, to our pleasant surprise, we recently learned that our Boiling Point Podcast had been included in the Dragon’s Den Top 8 Must Listen Podcasts for Entrepreneurs.
For those who haven’t stumbled across the Boiling Point yet, it’s a podcast for the ever-evolving entrepreneur and forward-thinking movement pioneer. Our podcast is meant to inform and inspire positive change in businesses and the world. Our hope is that listeners will leave each episode inspired to make positive advancements in their life and career or, at the very least, be reminded of the path to an adventured filled life.
Sixty episodes later we’re still finding our way with the podcast process. Greg and I really enjoy making the podcasts which is the biggest thing driving the endeavour. We decided to try something that was brand new to us a year ago so it is very cool to be recognized for a passion project!
If you’ve had the chance to listen to some of the podcasts you’ll know what I mean when I say just how much I’ve learned from our guests on the podcast. We’ve met some incredibly smart, talented and interesting people with wonderfully inspiring stories.
My favourite podcasts have been the ones that involve exposing an uber-talented, entrepreneurial friend to a wider audience. Of course, having a Canadian icon like Commander Chris Hadfield on the podcast was a true highlight. I was thrilled to be able to ask him the question that my 8-year-old son suggested. (you can listen to the podcast here).
I encourage you to have a listen to one or two podcasts, and subscribe if you want listen to future podcasts. Here’s a great place to start…
Commander Chris Hadfield

One of our first podcast guests, David Alston, helped us name our podcasts after spending some time in our small, cramped and very hot podcast booth! David Alston is a New Brunswick IT hero.David – in his words – made it to where he is today by being inspired by computing while in school and believes that the ability to code turns students into leaders. Coding teaches you how to be creative, problem solve, and learn that failure is just another step toward success. Listen
Glen developed the Rupture Seal, a product that fixes leaks in a matter of seconds saving costly chemicals and the environment.
