TJ Hale the host of Shark Tank Podcast recently featured Slyde Handboards co-owners, Steve and Angela Watts.

TJ "believes that entrepreneurs solve problems.  I believe they are the catalysts of actual progress (not the kind you hear politicians speaking about to curry favor with the masses) and I believe they are the engine that improves our civilization…one idea, product, or company at a time."

The 60minute podcast is information and inspiration rich,  including details regarding the Slyde business, what really happened on the show, failures, setbacks, big wins, and what its like partnering with a multi-millionaire/billionaire investors, Ashton Kutcher and Mark Cuban.

The team has been a recent whirlwind of print articles, including New York Times, Forbes, Huffington Post, however this is the first podcast and Youtube interview yet to be released. Hearing the story direct from the sources, and seeing Steve & Angela's reactions and responses, shines a new light on the entrepreneurial journey
