    Hey StarTalk Fans. Today we have an opportunity to introduce you to a new podcast that we’re very excited about. No, it’s not another StarTalk spinoff – although we may have some interesting news for you on that front in a couple of months, so stay tuned. No, this is a new podcast called Akimbo, and it’s hosted by our favorite evidence-based-marketing thought leader, Seth Godin. Seth is one of the most successful and influential business writers of all time, and some of us here at StarTalk are big fans. Akimbo is a podcast about our culture and about how we can change it. About seeing what's happening and choosing to do something. You can subscribe to Akimbo in Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, or at Akimbo.me, and right now, you can listen to the first two episodes exclusively on StarTalk. So, without further ado, we happily present, Akimbo.
