Laughing Squid Founder Scott Beale Has a Cocktail Conversation with Dan Maccarone on ‘Story In a Bottle’

Story in a Bottle

The third episode of Story in a Bottle, the weekly podcast series in which Dan Maccarone of Charming Robot sits down with tech innovators over cocktails, features our very own Scott Beale, the Primary Tentacle and Editor-in-Chief of Laughing Squid.

Scott Beale is the founder and primary tentacle of Laughing Squid, as well as advisor to Selfie.com and All Power Labs. Scott took his early beginnings in film to create one of the biggest art, culture and technology blogs and hosting companies (which boasts a record 1MM visits in a single day). From growing up and delivering pizza in Dayton, Ohio to pursuing a documentarian career to a stint at Burning Man and ultimately growing Laughing Squid to where it is today, his experience is both entertaining and inspirational. We joined him for his favorite cocktail, the Bloody Gin and Tonic (made by his wife, Lori Dorn), to hear his perspective of the industry but found even more with his insightful perspectives on authenticity, sensationalism, memes, and common mistakes on the internet.

Disclaimer: I made the cocktails.
