Victor Hugo once wrote that “There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come.”
This is the first part of our two-episode conversation in which we explore why some ideas gain traction, while others fail to catch on.
In this episode, Ethan Beute, Mark Bonchek, Dara Treseder, and Sangram Vajre join us to discuss:

- Value of storytelling and community to spread ideas
- Ideas as products
- Incremental vs. exponential adoption curves
