About the Project


Out of the Crisis is a podcast hosted by Eric Ries highlighting leaders from all sectors who are providing and coordinating relief efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eric created this podcast to share inspiring stories in real-time but also as a call to action. If you think you can help, do. If you want to help but don’t know how, the people in these episodes will guide you towards ways to get started. The guests on this show are helping to lead us through and eventually out of the crisis and offering tools for joining the effort.

How far along is it

So far we have released 4 episodes with 7 more recorded. The production, editing and hosting infrastructure is set up. We have a strong following with around 1,000 subscribers and 20,000 listens per episode.

Help Needed

Tasks that need to get done

We need help getting the word out about the show. We have gotten a fairly big following having done almost no promotion. Eric has a big following, as does Breaker. Most of our guests have a following as well. We could leverage these channels better but need someone dedicated to this.

We could also use help in sourcing guests. We know a lot about the big names but we want to shine a light on the more grass roots people.The people on the front lines helping get us out of the crisis. I think more marketing and promotion of the show will also help people find us.
