    Launching A $5M Fund While Homeless

    Launching A $5M Fund While Homeless

    Seeing Janet Jackson as a child in Houston changed everything for Arlan Hamilton. The music star looked like her and exuded confidence, and Hamilton came away believing that nothing was impossible. That belief was challenged when she abandoned a successful career in music to try and launch a career in tech. She talks about launching her Backstage Capital venture fund from a food court without a prospect of where to sleep that night, and how that prepared her for the roller coaster of the tech industry and life in general.

    The Crusader Making Silicon Valley Diverse

    Less than 2 percent of the companies funded by venture capital companies are run by African Americans, and the number of women founders has plateaued at 17 percent for the last four years. Next week's guest is looking to change all that. In this week's preview, we tease Arlan Hamilton's pivot from music tour manager to venture capitalist focused on funding companies started by women, people of color and members of the LGBT community. She's got an enormous task ahead.

    Swimming With Sharks

    Swimming With Sharks

    A fall down the stairs at the age of 30 changed Kimberley Chambers' life forever. We talk to the open-water swimmer and first ever woman to swim the treacherous passage from the Farallone Islands to San Francisco Bay. Stretching 30 miles it passes through the 'red triangle' where 38% of America's shark attacks take place. Recorded at San Francisco's South End Rowing Club, we talk to her about her relationship with sharks, and the allure of operating at the bleeding edge of risk. Her documentary on the attempt appears at the Mill Valley Film Festival this month. Trailer at https://www.kimswims.com/film/

    How to Live a Life Off the Grid

    How to Live a Life Off the Grid

    Former pro snowboarder Mike Basich has become a pioneer in the off the grid movement. He's built a self-sustaining 300 square foot home on 40 acres in Tahoe, guided by the philosophy that any creative endeavor is only worth it if you invest sweat equity (and not the Silicon Valley kind). He stops by the Red Bull podcast to talk about what it takes (physically and mentally) to live off the grid and how he pioneered the art of the action selfie - more than a decade before GoPro.
