Awhile back I recorded a podcast with John Michaloudis from MyExcelOnline and it went live today.  Fun chat, lots of excitement.

In my podcast with John Michaloudis, we talk about all of the “beautiful accidents” which led me to where I am today.  We talk about my favorite Excel tips (enabling a certain addin Podcast with John Michaloudis), my favorite Excel function (heh heh, it starts with “CAL”), but most importantly, the amazing opportunities available to us data folks today.

I was apparently fully-caffeinated that day too, as you’ll hear in the first 30 seconds of the pod…  if you aren’t “up” to listen to the full 67 minutes, just listen to that first 30 seconds Power Pivot and Power BI Podcast with John Michaloudis from MyExcelOnline

  2. Rob,

    I discovered Powerpivot days ago out of sheer necessity and was immediately hooked. I started looking for sources to devour and I came across John’s podcast. Ken Puls was #1 in my queue, you were #2.

    I was screaming to myself in my car ” YES! EXACTLY!” when you related Powerpivot to discovering fire, and chuckled when you briefly mentioned cube formulas (felt like you held back a little there).

    I had no idea the podcast had just been published this week when I heard it. I’m unaccustomed to finding bakery-fresh excel info on the internet and was pleasantly surprised. I just wanted to thank you for such an inspiring show. I believe it when you said that this can change lives.


    1. Hi Steve! SO good to hear this 🙂

      May I ask you to elaborate a little bit on how you “found Power Pivot out of sheer necessity?” I’ve heard that tale many times but it never gets old and I learn something with each telling, because each one is unique in its own way.

  3. Great podcast, Rob. I listened to it twice, and scribbled down a whole bunch of ‘value proposition’ notes to hit management with. And the bonus offer at the end is greatly appreciated 🙂

  4. Great interview. I don’t agree with the Table feature in Excel 2007 not being groundbreaking though. In fact I would go as fas as to say it was the start of Modern Excel 🙂
