ABOUT THE EPISODE: It’s difficult to sum up what Kara Oehler does in a single title. The process quickly turns into a hyphenated chain of words–documentarian-radio producer-tech founder-interactive media producer-entrepreneur-academic. We chatted with the co-founder of Zeega and GoPop–the latter which was recently acquired by Buzzfeed–about her early influences, growing up in the woods of Indiana, starting communities like UnionDocs Collaborative Studio and metaLAB at Harvard, living out of her car to document Main Streets across America, and being a female in the tech and startup world. Come along for the ride, it’s a lot of fun.
