GetCast: Rand Fishkin on rebuilding Moz and himself, an intimate interview

Rand Fishkin is the founder, face, soul, and self-styled Wizard of Moz. He’s built an SEO tool that industry experts love. But his success hasn’t always been easy. Rand has spoken before about the building of Moz.com and ending up $500,000 in debt. We caught up with Rand to talk about his life now, including his new role at Moz, the new keyword research tool he’s building, and the apps he loves to use. Oh, and his moustache.

Jimmy Flores :Jimmy loves apps. He's always finding an excuse to record a podcast or video about apps. He also pays for far too many of them. So many that his wife wonders where all those PayPal invoices are coming from each month. He excels at annoying everyone by constantly spouting his paleo nonsense.
