Ask me about how to get 500 more miles from a podcast recording.
I am a shiny object chaser. Excited by new challenges and new opportunities.
Each day, I get to hear founder stories, entrepreneurial journeys and ideas that are not fully formed, and that is what drives me to do what I do. I don't care whether you started a junk collection service or launched a clothing brand—equally exciting to me.
My passion is creating and sharing compelling stories for companies of all shapes and sizes.
I also love coffee and welcome any opportunity to grab a cup in-person or over video chat. Feel free to reach out.
Ask me about podcasting as vehicle for meaning and profit.
✌️ I am Ryan Estes, I’m the co-founder of Kitcaster. I validate and scale Kitcaster products.
I have owned a media and marketing agency for the last 10 years. For eight of those years I hosted the founders podcast Talklaunch. Consistently ranked in the iTunes "Top 100" podcasts, I have recorded 300+ interviews with more than a quarter million downloads. I attribute $1M+ in revenue as a direct result from podcasts. I love podcasting. I believe the medium possesses a giant opportunity for entrepreneurs and I'm more than happy to discuss your prospects.
I am married with two kiddos here in Denver. I enjoy training brazilian jiu jitsu and capoeira, volunteering as a finance mentor, and I am an avid sportsman.
Our mission is to put the world’s top startup founders on the world’s top podcasts and let them share their stories with a wider audience. If you have an amazing story to tell, we’d love to help you share it with the world.
Director of Operations
Ask me about the Loire Valley, Koji, Jacques Derrida, and The L Word
By day, I'm your Beverly Hills plastic surgeon for saggy copy. By night, I’m a 2020 remake of Miles from Sideways (still white, way more queer, and Merlot is fine as long as it has little to no sulfates in it).
When I’m not listening to podcasts about how to propagate wild strains of yeast or why you should chop green onions on an angle, I’m scrolling through Petfinder as a form of self care.
My closet doubles as a wine cellar (I’m practical folks) and my kinks include: Bon Appetit videos, the oxford comma, and REI garage sales. I could drop a lot of random knowledge and perhaps even be a little funny on your podcast.
Director of Product
Music production, audio editing, entertainment, life stories, entrepreneurship, and product development.
I've always lived my life on the pursuit to make others happy. Whether it's by making them smile with a new rhythm, or by creating a product that just makes things easier, my goal is to leave a mark on this world that nobody frowns about.
I love to talk about new technology products (specifically in the blockchain space), and would be happy to talk for hours about anything other than politics.
SR. Account Executive
Ask me how to rebuild a carburetor, CouchSurf in a foreign country, or how to scuba dive with sharks!
DIRECTOR OF Success
Ask me about Volkswagen vans, four-legged friends, and sending snail mail!
I was raised in a small farm town in Northern Colorado and grew up showing horses, riding dirtbikes, and always playing outside. Although not much has changed from then until now, I’m currently pursuing a degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder for Communications.
I have a serious obsession with my 1970 Volkswagen Type II Bus that was handed down to me and originally owned by my grandfather. I’m restoring with my dad and loving every second. From turning a wrench or taking it camping, anytime with the bus is always great!
(Even the times having to ask for a push start to get us going again)
I love spending my time outdoors with the simplicity nature provides. I truly am recharged just by unplugging and heading to the mountains. Recently I've been channeling my inner Bob Ross and busting out the paints. My favorite is sending hand painted postcards to family, friends, folks in the military, and even strangers to make their day with a little snail mail.
SR. Campaign Manager
Ask me about baking, running half marathons, and anything tennis related.
I’m a Sunshine State native turned Colorado transplant after not handling any more crazy humidity levels and ‘Florida Man’ news stories. As an avid runner, traveler, tennis player, and cookie baker, I try my hardest never to be bored. However, I do occasionally love sitting on the couch and mindlessly binging ‘Survivor.’ I’m always open to trying new activities, especially if they come with an adrenaline rush.
Journalism and writing have always excited me, and connecting with people through their stories has always been my passion. I love talking to anyone about anything, and I could probably talk to a wall about the meaning of life longer than you could. I also try to keep up with my American Sign Language skills by signing along to ‘80s songs whenever I’m alone in my bedroom.
I love talking about trash reality TV, all kinds of sports, and how badly I want to save a Greyhound someday. I enjoy connecting with people and learning new things from them over a cup of coffee or a nice cold beer.
Ask me about improv comedy, knitting, the Chrysler Building, coffee shop punch cards.
PROGRAM MANAGER SR. Campaign Manager
Ask me about my socks, where I want to travel, and my favorite board games.
Born in the midwest, raised in Montana. I grew up both playing in cornfields and learning how to survive a bear attack if needed. I came to Denver to get the “big city” experience and decided to stick around for the music and mountains.
I would consider myself an avid adventurer and enthusiastic escapist. If I’m not using my free time to backpack, ski, or climb then I’m likely engrossed in a compelling story and obsessing over it to an almost unhealthy level.
I always try to dip my toes into as many new hobbies as possible. From gardening to salsa dancing, there’s very little that I won’t at least try for a bit. So, send me a note and introduce me to what you’re passionate about - I’d love to learn all about it.
Let’s talk about what drives you. Or that fateful time you fell in front of your crush that still shakes you to your core. I am a world-renowned listener and I don’t have to respond if you don’t want me to, your secret is forever safe with me. But not on your next podcast of course so let’s talk that through so you can finally go on walks with your partner. I’m glad it worked out by the way.
I am a music industry native who has been touring and booking the country since before I could legally hold the glass of whiskey I can't seem to stop singing about. I have been to most places more times than I can count so the likelihood of us bumping elbows is higher than most, so, it is lovely to see you again.
My days have always been filled with creating or working with creatives to get the voices heard in the strongest medium to reach the farthest and to be heard the loudest. So let's get loud.
Ask me nerdy audio questions. I love making music for artists and TV, learning new things, eating the best food, and watching lots of sports.
I'm a sucker for a good time, and San Diego has provided that for me my whole life. Whether it's hanging out with friends, skating, surfing, or anything a typical California kid would do.... that's been me since day 1.Aside from typical San Diego activities.
Music is my #1 passion. I grew up on my dad's record collection of 90s thrash metal, early Sabbath, and 70s rock - I've translated the aesthetic of my early heavy metal influences into a modern collection of dark yet soulful music productions. I've been writing and producing music for over 10 years, and don't see myself stopping any time soon.I've spent time in Los Angeles going to school for audio engineering and interning in commercial music studios -- I currently work out of my home studio in San Diego, California.
I've done everything from Djing EDM shows, playing in bands, producing records for rappers and singers, and even making music for some very cheesy reality television. You can find my music on shows like Temptation Island, The Ultimatum on Netflix, Love Is Blind. and Love Without Borders (to name a few).
While music is my passion, I also LOVE podcasts... and I'm here to help. Kitcaster has given me an opportunity to take a deep dive into the podcast space, and I'm excited for what's to come!
Ask me about Agile and Bully Sticks.
I found myself in Denver, CO by way of the Ozark Humane Society. No shade to Arkansas, but I love my Rocky Mountain home. During my adolescence, I learned a thing or two about resilience. I'm a strong, independent pup who loves to backpack, hike, and brewery hop with my moms. When I'm not in a zoomies fit, you can find me in the office perfecting my paw-dcast production skills.
Anyway, Rue loves y'all!
