[00:02:37] Joanna Shevelenko: Thank you for having us.
[00:02:41] Thomas McGannon: Oh my goodness, thank you so much for joining. I've really enjoyed getting to do this podcast project. As I said in an interview that we published, I've kind of been asking myself like what if your job was just to stop and take an extra moment to explore. Kelly I was, as I mentioned in an email, I just sent, I was re listening to a podcast interview that you did um gosh, like five years ago, around the time when you did the University of Colorado commencement speech and it was fun because the other reason for wanting to do this podcast is like, it, it actually is an outgrowth of my day job which is like doing manager due diligence and learning about industries and and finding the kinds of partners that that we would like to invest with.
And listening to that interview and reading some of the snippets of your um Boulder commencement speech and just going through kind of materials that you guys have sent. It was a reminder to me why I was so excited to be an investor with you all and and so getting to have a conversation about all of this. I've really been looking forward to it.
