Join podcaster Aaron Watson as he presents a daylong dialogue with some of Pittsburgh’s brightest minds as they help local entrepreneurs and innovators “take their thinking to the next level.”

Watson, a Pittsburgh native, hosts the podcast, Going Deep, which features nearly 300 episodes in which he unlocks the stories of millennials and other modern-day innovators who are bucking the status quo and charting a new course toward independence and fulfillment in their lives with unconventional and rewarding careers.

Panelists for Saturday’s summit include boxer and author, Ed Latimore; 412 Food Rescue CEO (and NEXTpittsburgh alum!) Leah Lizorando; Dynamic Paddlers founder Larry Gioia; bestselling author, Zak Slayback, and others. There’s even lunch from East Liberty’s new Indian BBQ restaurant, Choolaah.
