Episode details

Language learning doesn't have to be intensive or cumbersome! What if you could learn by simply browsing the web? Toucan does this with a browser extension that lets you read whatever site you're and pick up words in another language - using context clues - to learn over time. Taylor Nieman, founder and CEO of Toucan joins the show to talk with Scott about the lessons she learned from Headspace to overlay Toucan on top of user experience as opposed to a standalone app, what they've learned from user behavior before and during the pandemic, why Baron Davis wanted to be on the cap table and using apps like Twitter to get constructive criticism for your ideas.
