An Interview with Derek Sivers – Founder of CD Baby

I am terribly embarrassed it has taken me over 12 months to publish this interview. Especially considering that this is my favourite interview to date (no offence to everyone else – I love you all).

The truth is we wound up this podcast in favour of the new WP Elevation podcast and this interview somehow just fell through the cracks. I could make up some elaborate story about how Dropbox failed to sync the file or my editor in the US took forever to edit it. But that would be bullshit.

I just forgot I hadn’t published it and for that I am sorry. Especially to Derek, who gave up almost an hour of his time to speak with me. I hope he forgives me.

I recently interviewed John O’Nolan from Ghost for the WP Elevation podcast who discovered I had this interview in the can and told me “stop being a dick and publish it.” So here it is. Thank you, John.

I hope you will agree, it has been worth the wait.
