The mic drop is a gesture of intentionally dropping the microphone at the end of a speech or performance to show triumph. While this episode will not be on the level of an Eddie Murphy mic drop from the 1980s, you will get a lesson on what a mic drop is and reflections from past Secret Tech Sauce guests and insight into why I run a podcast.

 

In this episode you will learn:

  • History of the mic drop - From Eddie Murphy 1983 standup comedy show in the 80s to President Obama’s mic drop on the Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon in April 2012 to Google’s Gmail feature introduced on April Fool’s day in 2016.
  • Reflections from top guests in 2016 - why you should go back and listen if you missed them
  • Why Ben runs a podcast? Is it for the money, the glory, the what? You will learn why Ben spends his precious time on a podcast.
  • And much, much more…
