The Sam & Serg Show

ABOUT SAM & SERGIO

Sam and Serg are products of silicon valley – born for the hustle, together they founded the WhatUp podcast in 2017 for people like them – business-minded professionals, sports enthusiasts, and the cool kids of the south bay.

Sam and Sergio met networking around Silicon Valley (basically, a story of networking gone very, very right). In January 2017, they launched a podcast. Sam was excited. Sergio was not. Fast forward a year and a rebrand later (everyone’s excited now!), and what was a weekly South Bay news show is now a podcast network.
