 Ronny Chieng | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 4770

Ronny Chieng is comedian and actor. By day he's the Senior Correspondent for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, by night he's a stand-up comedian, with sold out shows worldwide and also an actor, having recently starred in the box-office hit, Crazy Rich Asians. His list of accomplishments are impressive to say the least. Born in Malaysia, Ronny grew up in Manchester, New Hampshire and Singapore, but attended law school in Australia. It was during his time there where he got an itch for comedy and from then on began pursuing it professionally.  In this episode, Ronny breaks down his career from law student turned comedian and how he managed to defeat the odds going against him. Rather than changing his brand or style of comedy to fit the mainstream mold, Ronny chose to be unapologetically himself by using unfiltered comedy because "authenticity resonates." Despite having been on The Daily Show since 2015, Ronny has had incredible success in his solo career, coming off his recent hit Netflix special: Asian Comedians Destroys America. He details moving to NYC in pursuit of comedy, the smoke & mirrors in Hollywood, being an asian comic in the U.S. and much more.  Thank you so much for tuning into the Business of HYPE.

 Tim Brown of Allbirds | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 4363

Tim Brown is the Co-Founder and Co-CEO alongside Joey Zwillinger of footwear company, Allbirds. In just under a five years, the company has amassed over 500 employees, 17 retail locations and over a billion dollars in valuation.  What most may not know is that this idea was the brainchild of Tim's for years while he was a professional soccer player.  Having played for the Newcastle Jets, the Welllington Phoenix and the 2010 World Cup, Tim began designing sneakers and visiting factories to create more than hundreds of variations for a prototype shoe all during his offseasons. What started as just a fun idea for the athlete transformed into a successful Kickstarter campaign which eventually led to joining forces with his Co-CEO Joey in creating one of the most popular shoe brands today. In this episode, Tim breaks down his transition from professional soccer to brand building and how despite the doubt, these challenges empowered the CEO to bring his idea to fruition. He also highlights the importance transitioning Allbirds into a sustainable product using merino wool and recycled plastics to leave a carbon neutral footprint—because for Tim,  a product can only be great if it is sustainable.

 CJ Hendry | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 4349

***Important Note:  We excuse the audio quality of Jeff's interludes as they were recorded during COVID-19. CJ Hendry is an artist who's work blur the lines between art and photography. From still life and portraits to abstract ideas, CJ's drawing are hyperrealistic all through a million scribbles made from colored pencils. The Australian artist is based in New York where her work not only sells out in seconds, but she's had world-wide immersive exhibitions. While the art world nowadays is a breeding ground for conceptual and experimental based artworks, CJ keeps grounded by using the bare bones of her fine skills and extreme level of detail to create masterpieces. Alongside these works, are the interactive exhibitions she puts together that she says do more than "just put artworks on the wall." While the artist can easily show off her impeccable talent, it’s really her forthright and earnest approach to the art industry that's allowed her to successfully navigate this world in what she calls “the longest con game ever”. In this episode she breaks down her career, why money doesn't mean much to her and why she isn't intimidated by the art world. Thank you so much for tuning into the Business of HYPE.

 Daniel Arsham | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 3854

Daniel Arsham is a prolific artist who blurs the lines between art, architecture and fashion. From creating eroded casts of contemporary objects to designing dystopian future spaces under his architecture firm, Snarkitecture, Arsham is renowned for his relentless experimentation of shape and form across diverse genres of work. His artistic worldview is what separates him from his fellow contemporaries, ushering an indefinable world filled with Future Relics that blend the past, present and future. Straddling this concept of complex futurism is what has transformed Daniel Arsham into one of today’s most influential, interdisciplinary artists. In recent years, he's collaborated with KITH, Dior, Porsche, COS, Pokémon and many more brands, further pushing his work into a complex and multi-dimensional space where his art has reached audiences worldwide. In this episode, we dive into the mind of this complex artist and discover Arsham's central theme recurring through his artwork—the ethos of being able to float in time.  He also discusses his three entities: Snarkitecture, Editions and his art production studio and how more than just being an artist, Arsham is a full on business man, operating many hats.
