Ep. #400 - Steve Potash, Rakuten OverDrive Founder and CEO (Part 1)

It is not an understatement to say that Steve Potash is the reason we are able to do this podcast. Steve is the founder and creator of Rakuten OverDrive as well as one of the main reasons digital library reading is such a prevalent part of our lives. Each day, we come to work at the OverDrive office excitement to help create a world enlightened by reading and it all starts with Steve's energy and passion. But OverDrive has been around much longer than you likely realize and it didn't start with libraries.

On today's episode, Steve joins us to discuss the humble origins of this incredible company we get to call home.
