So necessary

Anshuman is a wonderful interviewer, and each episode feels like being welcomed into a niche community by one of its members. With grace and goodwill, this podcast tells the story of innovators and entrepreneurs who are often overlooked and undervalued.

Wonderful!

Anshuman has such an inviting voice. These interviews feel like sitting closely with a good friend in a familiar place. Thoughtful but not chalk-full of information, just calm intellectual emotional journeys through each story and I appreciate this podcast very much. Well done.

Necessary listening

There’s a lot I love about this show. Each episode contains a fascinating look into a particular niche business, especially focusing in on businesses run by people whose voices are typically minimized due to their race, national heritage, gender identity, sexual orientation, size, etc. But what I value most about this show is how it challenges its listeners to reconsider the very terms of ‘success’ and how we orient ourselves (and might reorient ourselves) to such an amorphous concept. Added bonus: Anshuman’s voice is as smooth and rich as an affogato on a hot summer day.

Must listen! Love the creators and host

Well done! I listen to a lot of podcasts and I find the storytelling on Vangaurd to be exceptional. The creators are engaging and forthcoming. I’m learning about new products, businesses, and personal journeys that are all new to me. I love when I can learn something new and understand someone else’s passion, and listening to Vanguard helps me do that.

My new favourite podcast

I can’t get enough! I love the uniqueness of this podcast, and I am so grateful to have found it because I don’t feel like I can hear these (beautiful, powerful, nuanced) stories anywhere else. Thank you! <3

An in-depth look into how POC are staying successful in an oppressive world

Vanguard is showcasing stories that are important for everyone to hear, especially in regards to how to support these entrepreneurs! It gives an honest look into the challenges and triumphs of these creators, and why uplifting marginalized creators’ work is more important today than ever before, and is just a delight to listen to overall!

Here comes Generation E (for Entrepreneurs)

Move over Generation Z, I think the next generation is going to be the generation of the entrepreneurs. They will not look for traditional jobs but instead will free lance their entire “career” which will unlock expansion, equality reform and opportunity growth not seen in history since the industrial revolution. Vanguard by Shopify is going to give them with the knowledge needed to make Generation E a reality.
