363 — Arjun Moorthy

Podcast Summary

I have always been passionate about great reporting and quality journalism. I started out as a paper delivery boy and later a journalist for a short time period. I guess that is one of the reasons Arjun and I really hit it off. He started as a paper delivery boy as well.

Today, he is tackling a mighty endeavor…finding a way to increase the amount of credible news we consume.

It’s a big mission…driven by a Founder who also embraces self-awareness.
