28:30-29:30 So tell me about Adelphic--why is it different?
29:30-31:00 What's the distinction when you say "at scale"?
31:00-33:30 Is there a privacy concern? How do you protect consumer privacy?
33:30-36:00 Do you think it's really a big issue for people?

46:00-54:15 Jennifer, it's been great having you on. How can people follow the progress of Adelphic?
54:15-55:30 Let's hear a Shark Tank pitch from Micah Alcorn of Homewrd.
55:30-56:30 Micah begins his pitch for his app that connects lost and found pet with their owners.
58:00-1:00:00 What could Micah have done better?
1:00:00-1:02:45 I'd put this pitch somewhere between and 8 and a 9. But I have a hard time thinking that someone will take the time to download an app. I'd give the business idea a 7.5.
1:02:45-1:07:30 Micah, why did you create this app?
1:07:30-1:08:00 Tyler: I think you got so engaged in this because he made it a really emotional issue
1:08:00-1:14:15 You might want to make this a Kickstarter project.
1:14:15-1:16:30 Thank you to Trada and MailChimp for supporting the show. We'll see you all next time!
