About this time last year Dan and Ian were working on their annual DCBKK event in Bangkok, and finding themselves (as usual) strapped for time. To be blunt, they weren’t devoting as much time or energy to this show as they wanted to – and felt it deserved. They realized that they needed help.

So they put out a call for a new producer, which was answered by a former BBC producer named Jane Beresford.

This week’s episode is the story of what has been happening behind the scenes at the Tropical MBA podcast since then. You’ll hear about the new production process that has been put in place – and how this has enabled Dan and Ian to deliver a show every single week, something they were increasingly struggling to do. We also talk about how the process has freed up time and energy to be more creative and professional with episodes, as well bringing a greater diversity of guests to the show.

  • What it was like to produce the show before the recent changes. (4:10)
