So Money with Farnoosh Torabi

If you’re a dog lover today’s podcast is totally for you! Elias Weiss Friedman is the star, or cameraman I should say, behind the insanely popular blog and Instagram account The Dogist, which shares daily portraits of adorable dogs out and about on the streets to over 1 million followers. Wow.  This has become such a hit since first launching in 2013 that the idea also translated into a book, which came a few weeks ago entitled, The Dogist: Photographic Encounters with 1,000 Dogs. After graduating from Boston University in 2010, Elias moved to New York City where he worked at a major brand strategy agency for two years until being laid off.  During this time he was inspired to be involved in a business venture that was more creative and authentic so he decided to combine his two passions, dogs and photography.  From there the rest is history.
