We ❤ candid product convos between product people—and our very first season of Product to Product features lots of ‘em.

Meet the humans behind the products. Navigate through the human side of being a PM—like handling tricky relationships with non-techy teammates, for one.

We break down the product terms you love to hate and hate to love—debunking the term or exploring how / why it can work.

📈 Tactical, sustainable, non-hacky ways to grow your product. Explore growth topics with product people from the latest and greatest growth teams.

This season, we’re digging into where it hurts–the growing pains of a scaling product organization.

At Roadmunk, we build a product for product people (a platform for creating beautiful and collaborative roadmaps). As part of the product community, we’ve seen how open product people are to helping their peers. They share their own experiences of working in product (both the good and the bad) in very honest ways – and they’re very generous with advice. The candid conversations that are taking place in product communities online make perfect material for podcasts. So we started one!

Product to Product is a product management podcast that will feature two product people talking about one product-specific topic—like applying machine learning to the right problems and building a healthy PM culture (and what "PM culture" is). We have really cool episodes coming up with product managers, designers, marketers and engineers.

Happy listening! smiley face
