Interesting...but not EVERYTHING can be tied to entrepreneurship

Conversations w ppl like Alex Honnold are so great - then it becomes so boring when “then we start talking about revenue....”Keep the gold, cut the fat. Or “junk mileage” as Alex said. Sometimes it’s smart enough to have these convos w AH folks and global leaders.

Loving the Journal Club

I’m really enjoying this series. The host is well informed and the guests (and their studies) are really interesting. Keep it up 🙌

Identifying quality comapies <> producing quality content

Stay in your lane (or prove you can stray outside of it). a16z has been incredible at identifying firms that will generate long term shareholder value, at least to a greater extent than other venture firms (certainly some active participation in there). however, they have no expertise in creating valuable and consumable content, and this podcast is evidence of that. This is garbage. They allowed associates to create this podcast for the sale of job satisfaction. At some point the GPs have to tell them that this is sub-par and stop propping up their value and egos. I’m done.

Good A16Z Content, but unwanted feed fillers

The podcast is insightful, but it overloads your feed with other podcast series they are promoting by publishing under this podcast line. Wish they would stay in their lane because that’s what we subscribed to.

Great but...

Great content, but the primary host/Interviewer interrupts the guests quite a lot with her own thoughts. It’s unfortunate - please, let them speak.

Is it possible to cut back on jargon?

As a dumb rube who didn’t go to business school, I sometimes get lost in sections about “first principles” or “ infomediaries”. Is it possible to at least explain some of these terms when they come up? Otherwise I love the pod, it’s always super informative and brief which is refreshing.

Couldn’t get through one episode

I tried listening to the episode on capitalism, technology, and the environment, but it was a joke. The guest MIT economist was making 300-year old arguments from Adam Smith in support of capitalism that have been debunked by Marx, Luxemburg, Lenin, and other non-bourgeois economists. He seemed to conflate capitalism with markets (one is a system of production, the other of distribution) while falsely dichotomizing capitalism and cronyism/corporatism. He argued, with I assume a straight face, that capitalism is the best system for delivering goods and services. Really? So everyone in the US who needs whatever medications to survive can easily afford and obtain them? Everyone who wants to work has a job? There’s no better way of delivering food and shelter to people? Come on! Also, try reading Engels’s “On the Condition of the Working Class in England” before talking about how great the industrial revolution was for everyone.

One of the best podcasts imho

I’ve been listening to this podcast for years now and it’s been super helpful in both working at companies, starting and now running my own (Puma Browser, check it out if you care about privacy or new ways to monetize content 🙃)

be brave you are a grown up!

Could be terrific but don’t pander or sensationalize. The material is awesome without excessive interpretations from Sonal. Let your experts speak. Audience is sophisticated don’t need to dumb down as to how terrible the opioid crisis is. If you must shed a tear do it in private, be brave during show.

Insightful and Sometimes Very Verbose

Eclectic topics and guests draw you in - however, sometimes there’s quite the verbal battle for “most buzz words” in a single sentence or battle for the mic.Great insights also delivered - and with some work and self-reflection they could really have a deeper impact.

Super insightful conversations

Super insightful conversations, great guests, and deep-dives into pressing topics. Audio quality can be a bit awkward at times but overally a great show.

Quality all over the map

Some topics better than others which can’t be helped given wide ranging nature of topics (not every topic relevant to every listener). What can be helped is how certain moderators/interviewers seem to wish they could do all the talking. Too often the guest gets talked over by the interviewer trying to show off how smart they are. Too bad as ruins what would otherwise be a good show.
