Welcome to the 176th episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc.'s editor-in-chief James Ledbetter.

This week, Inc.'s executive director of editorial Jon Fine offers some of the highlights of the magazine's annual How I Did It issue. Among them: How Udi Baron reluctantly started selling gluten-free bread, and built an empire out of it; how Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins built an business that's aiming to disrupt the bail-bond industry; and how Alli Webb of Drybar navigated family friction, grew her company fast, and hired new leadership.

Senior writer Christine Lagorio-Chafkin scopes out a new advertising campaign by New York City-based upstart KeyMe, which is taking a bite out of the $10 billion locksmith industry--but also has raised significant security concerns.

The episode wraps with an Exit Interview with Mark Emalfarb, who sold his biotech company Dyadic International to DuPont for $75 million in 2015.
