Andy Crestodina InquisitionBy Gini Dietrich

As many of you well know, Andy Crestodina is one of my most favorite people on earth.

He’s smart, he’s funny, he’s creative (watch the video to see what I mean), and he is one of the kindest people on earth.

One of my favorite Andy stories (I mean, other than my beating him at Dance Dance Revolution) is that he had dinner with some friends and me for my birthday last year.

Because I went from house to cab to restaurant, I wasn’t bundled up for February in Chicago. But we ended up waiting outside for a few minutes for a cab after dinner.

He gave me his hat and gloves to wear. I mean, the gloves were gigantic on me, but I wore them while he froze his little fingers off.

He’s a really good friend and I’m excited to have him on video for the Spin Sucks Inquisition.

The Spin Sucks Inquisition

Here are the questions I asked him:

  • Tell us who you are and what you do.
  • What is the biggest mistake you’ve made in the past six months?
  • What is one of the biggest trends you’ll be using this year?
  • What is one thing about yourself that would surprise most people?
  • What is the best book you’ve read in the last six months?
  • What is your latest Netflix binge?
  • Surprise feature
  • Where can people find you online?

If you can’t watch the video below, you can find it by clicking here.

Where You Can Find Andy Crestodina

If you aren’t already following Andy, he’s a must. In fact, I told my team just yesterday if they’re not already subscribed to his newsletter, it’s grounds for dismissal.

Because I can’t fire any of you, I’ll just highly recommend you check out all the work he does.

You can find him on:

Now the floor is yours.

I love how Gini looks like she is in Florida and Andy looks like he is in Minsk during a blizzard.

You need an intro song or jingle. Working on it the lyrics.

In my ongoing effort to improve Spin Sucks’ video… 🙂 -Gini… framing, perfect. You’ve been doing much better with this. Now, you should invest in an inexpensive lapel microphone for your computer so you have better audio. Your computer mic makes you sound hollow. Also, I assume your eyes are on the live feed window that shows your interview subject, and that’s why you’re looking down and to your left? Move the window with your interview subject to the top middle of your screen, right under the camera lens. It will appear to the viewer that you’re looking into the… Read more »

This is why we love you Tony!! Thank you! It’s funny, when I watched this I thought “man, I need to prop my computer up…Tony would cringe at this….so see, I do listen!

I’ll try to make you proud next round!

This was more fun than a Netflix binge. Andy, your papier mâché is incredible and now we’ll all think of you as the creative analytics guy. 😉

BTW, I’m loving how Postmatic has evolved over the past week and we can see each other again.

Happy Friday!
