What We Do
The reaction was so overwhelmingly positive to my first interview with Matt, so we did it again!
This one isn't too long, but it's dense. I learned so much about what it has been like to be inside this body as several parts of it are slowly coming back online. Matt's amazing.
PLUS we got new sound gear, so sound quality is seriously BUMPED moving forward.
This week I talked to Johnny Steindorff, the managing partner of one of the first cryptocurrency hedge funds in the world. I treated this interview like an hour of "Blockchain/Cryptocurrency for Dummies," and I ended up learning a ton.
Johnny thinks Bitcoin will eventually reach $500K-$1M per coin. We shall see!
This week I interviewed Aura Vasquez, the youngest commissioner at Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, about fighting climate change, divesting from coal, and then I try to convince her to run for office. Hopefully it works!
This week I spoke with Radha Agrawal about creating Daybreaker and building a business around sober raves, why she started Thinx underwear, and how she thinks building community is the key to moving our society forward.
This week I talked to Tarun Chitra and Ruthie Nachmany about how they started NYC Salon, why glass is like contra dancing, and what their biggest fuck-ups have been.
Tarun and Ruthie are the type of people who I think are way, way smarter than they let on. I learned a lot in this hour.
Seth Winterroth is a smart dude. He's a partner at Eclipse, a robotics VC fund with $435 million AUM, he's a clean energy whiz, and he taught me about quantum computing. Still not sure I fully understand, but "Quantum Supremacy" would totally be the name of my intergalactic warfare strategy, if I ever had to develop one.
This week I did a rapid fire interview with Foreign Policy reporter Robbie Gramer. We talked Russia's influence in Eastern Europe, Catalonian independence, what's happening with the Kurds, and much more.
This week I talked to Nina Faulhaber and Meg He, the founders of ADAY, about what it's like to start a fashion brand, taking the leap from secure employment to entrepreneurship, and what their biggest fuck-ups have been.
First off, we get to hear from Matt! So this episode gets off to an amazing start. Then I talk to Aaron Hatch (aka Fresh Big Mouf) about how he stumbled upon the wacky niche of Beat Scout videos that have opened all kinds of doors for him, and then we really get into it when we talk about his process of leaving Mormonism.
