What We Do
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.
In this episode, I talked to Audrey Buchanan about her work as a creative and filmmaker who cares deeply about social justice, her time with Summit Series, where she gets inspiration, and how important home is.
This week we talked to Swing Left co-founder Joshua Krafchin about immediately taking action after watching the election results, what Swing Left hopes to achieve in the lead-up to the 2018 midterms, and how personal experience gave him insight into how to overcome bullies in positions of power.
We talked to music photographer Marcello Ambriz about covering the angles no one else sees, life on the road, and working with acts like New Kids on the Block, 311, Fifth Harmony, and more.
This week we talked to Urban Golf Performance founder Mackenzie Todd about his 5-year journey from living on food stamps to leading a multi-million dollar company, how failing as a professional golfer was a blessing in disguise, and spending his teenage years at IMG Golf Academy.
