Exclusive Video Interview With Pandora Founder
On Tuesday, I caught up with Tim Westergren, the founder of Pandora, in Grand Forks, North Dakota. He was doing a town hall tour of the nation and meeting up with listeners. It was a great experience to see Tim talk and hear listener ideas about where the company should go. After the well-attended event, he and I sat down and chatted about many of the topics that have been floating around the Hypebot community. Keep in mind that I was being rather candid and thanks to Tim, who bought coffee for everyone who came, I was quite caffeinated.
The result is short segment that covers everything from web startups to radio to licensing costs. Many thanks to Tim for taking the time to talk to me after the event and I hope you enjoy our short chat. Here's a video and a picture:

Before the interview, Tim and I reviewed the reader questions and found none of them provided more than a few word answer, so we moved onto the questions I jotted down. Also, the video of Tim talking at the event got pulled from the blog because some of the footage contained shots of Pandora listeners.
