Launching Das Tor’s Thundercast podcast truly was a labor of love, and publishing our first episode took several years. Jesse Breffle (Class of 2019) was the first T-bird who thought of doing a Thunderbird podcast. He interviewed several of his fellow classmates during his time at Thunderbird. These audios were never published during Jesse’s time as a student. However, he was gracious enough to give Das Tor access to his interview files.
This Thundercast Throwback is the second in a series of interviews with students from the Class of 2019. In this episode, Jesse and Bryce Bower (Class of 2019 and former Das Tor Editor-in-Chief) interview fellow student Binoy Vasavada about his upbringing in India and his path to Thunderbird.
Jesse is currently working for a localization and translation company called inWhatLanguage as an Account Manager. He is also building a cacao beverage social enterprise and a nonprofit that hosts leadership treks for underprivileged girls in Nepal. His beverage company is called Téo Cacao, and his nonprofit is called Raksha Ascent.
Binoy is currently working for a market intelligence firm, GlobalData, as an Account Director. He manages tech sector clients across North America and Europe. He gets to speak with people from different cultural and educational backgrounds, using his negotiation and relationship building skills to grow accounts. Next year, he will also get to travel countries to visit clients.
