Listen: The Ground Breaking Podcast's Eli Smit interviews Wrestler's Ben Forman

It’s not often you stumble across a ten-year-old New Zealander hosting a business podcast, but then again, most nine-year-olds aren’t like self-proclaimed budding entrepreneur Eli Smit. After discovering Smit as our Emerging Talent, we will be hosting season two of Smit's podcast on Idealog. In this episode, Smit chats with Wrestler founder Ben Forman. Wrestler is a creative agency specialising in human centred storytelling.They have worked with the likes of Allbirds, Singapore Airlines, NZ Post and Kiwibank. From creating parody rap videos in high school, Forman has come along way, and was this year baned on the Forbes Asia 30 Under 30 list. Ben is one of only six New Zealanders to make the list this year, and the only Kiwi in the media, marketing & advertising category. Here, he chats with Smit about how he started his venture.
