131: Supporting your Favorite Creators with Brave with Jimmy Secretan


I've been a big fan of Brave Browser ever since attending a presentation from Brendan Eich back in 2017.  Brave was one of the first browsers to aggressively block the ability for websites to share information on your computer without your consent (i.e. third party cookies).  I'm so excited to sit down with Jimmy Secretan, VP of Ads and Premium Services of Brave, and talk about all things Brave, from the Browser to the other products to the way Brave takes privacy on the internet to a whole new level, while also empowering content creators and advertisers who depend on ads for income and to promote their businesses.
