TMBA569: An Ode to DCBKK
48 min

Longtime listeners know that this is typically the time of year that we host DC BKK, our annual Dynamite Circle event in Bangkok.

Each year, hundreds of entrepreneurs flock to the capital city of Thailand for the chance to meet and share ideas with like-minded people from across the globe.

This has always been sort of a magical time for so many of us in the community, and to say that we are disappointed that we can't take part in it this year would be a huge understatement.

It has become something of a tradition that our good friend Jeff Pecaro sits down with us after the event to crack open a beer and talk shop.

Jeff is an incredibly talented copywriter and the founder of MostlyStories.com. He is also the man behind the content at most of our in-person events.

This year, Jeff is joining us virtually on the podcast to commiserate and share some of our favorite memories, thoughts, and insights into the history of DCBKK.
