New Google+ Hangout Series! Author Srinivas Rao joins Guy Kawasaki

This week the APE team, Guy Kawasaki, Shawn Welch and Peg Fitzpatrick, will be flipping the microphone on BlogCastFM host Srinivas Rao who has interviewed over 300 people for his show. Here’s Srini’s interview of Guy: Guy Kawasaki on Writing, Publishing and Entrepreneurship

Srini’s story on Copyblogger by Beth Hayden: Case Study: How to Build a Vast Audience by Mastering the Art of the Interview. “Srinivas Rao graduated from business school in 2009, straight into one of the worst U.S. job markets we’ve faced since the Great Depression. But, instead of getting frustrated at the lack of opportunity in corporate America, Srini reinvented himself as a content marketer. Srini’s interviews on his podcast, BlogcastFM, are legendary. He’s hosted Chris Guillebeau, Danielle LaPorte, Tim Ferriss, and Seth Godin, and his site has become a sought-after stop for authors during any successful book launch.”

Srinivas Rao’s bio in his words:

I believe there are things you should have learned in school but never did. In April 2009, I completed my MBA at Pepperdine University. After two degrees, 10 years of work experience,  and a series of failed relationships I never felt more unprepared for life. A few weeks later my bank balance literally hit zero and I moved back to my parents house.

It seemed like I was right back where I started at the age of 18 when I went off to UC-Berkeley for my first degree. That summer I became obsessed with surfing because I needed a way to escape how bad my life had become. That was the start of an incredible journey of riding waves, building a media empire, and sharing my ideas with the world. I became a student of The Skool of Life. Srini writes on his blog The Skool of Life and his self-published books:
