Sell-Side Technology deputy editor Dan DeFrancesco and WatersTechnology US editor Anthony Malakian record a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology.
With Dan away on vacation, Anthony enlisted the services of his dad, Larry Malakian, to help with the podcast. Larry spent over 40 years building and running data centers for companies like Equitable (now Axa), Cigna and Avon. For the podcast, he discusses the importance of getting a diverse array of feedback when facing a problem (~6:30), his "favorite" outage war story (~15:00), his greatest disaster recovery success (~17:00), his thoughts on his son being a journalist (~23:30), leadership qualities (~26:30) and food etiquette when in Asia (~30:00).
