If you have a podcast, Jason Snell will probably agree to be on it. He's on a lot of podcasts. He may have a problem.

This site and feed exist to provide one podcast feed for all of his appearances (outside of The Incomparable or Relay FM). It's like a whole new podcast where the guest stays the same but the rest of the podcast just keeps changing!

Interview with Six Colors Editor-in-Chief Jason Snell

Jason Snell is one of the best known Apple technical journalists. He’s the Editor-in-Chief of the Apple focused website Six Colors, and he told me the intriguing story about how that name came to be. Previously he was Senior VP and editorial director at IDG, publishers of Macworld, PCWorld, and TechHive. Jason always knew he wanted to be a journalist, and he told me the story about, as a kid, standing on his back porch in a rainstorm and pretending to do a live TV weather report. In 1991, he created InterText, one of the first online fiction magazines. Today, Jason writes and podcasts about everything Apple. In our show, Jason shared his thoughts about many of the most timely and pressing topics related to Apple today: the Mac and iPad futures and the Apple TV.

"Passing Through Gethsemane"

This is possibly one of the best done-in-one episodes of B5: meaty, great sci-fi concept, cultural commentary, well directed and (mostly) acted, psychological drama, and a surprising amount of fodder for the spoiler section. And because someone dies horribly in it, that means it’s time for that cheery soul Jason Snell to join us again!

Build Your Utopia 34

Interview with Jason Snell

Jason Snell was lead editor at Macworld for a decade, and recently left that job to start Six Colors, an independent web site about Apple and other technology companies. He’s also the host of numerous podcasts on the Relay FM network as well as his own The Incomparable network.

He left his company to take on a new challenge because he didn’t like his previous job, it was too much management and not enough creativity. Plus, the company was showing signs of sliding downhill. Jason and his former employer parted ways mutually right around the time that the company was going through layoffs.

Luckily, Jason was planning ahead and was actively setting up the foundation of his entrepreneurial path.

Jason has a great office set up in his garage and has worked with his family to create separation.

Jason feels close to being in his Utopia. With his Utopia, he’s not looking for complete security but more challenges, freedom to make creative decisions, and a focus on content and web publishing. He also likes putting the decisions on his shoulders and then not having barriers to having decisions implemented, unlike corporate settings. This is why he loves what he’s doing with Six Colors.

He has never had much of a work-life balance, whether it was in his previous media position or his current company. The challenge has been being aware of a dividing line of respect with time for work and time for family. It has been an on-going challenge for him.. sound familiar?

Jason’s 3 Value Bombs:

  • Be open to new things
  • Nobody is better than you and nobody is worse than you
  • Find the things that you love and try to integrate them into what you do as much as possible

Find out how they use the Pebble, their thoughts on its future and how it might fare against the Apple Watch, and how much fashion plays into the equation.
