    • Investing

Shervin Pishevar is one of the most successful venture capitalists in Silicon Valley. He has previously invested heavily into companies like Uber, Airbnb, and many others.

In this conversation, we discuss Elon Musk, Travis Kalanick, the various industry-defining companies that Shervin has backed, why creators control the new media paradigm, and why Shervin believes Bitcoin is a long-term systemic bet on humanity.

Our second sponsor is choice, a new self-directed IRA product that I'm really excited about. If you are listening to this, you are likely part of the 7.1 million bitcoin owners who have retirement accounts with dollars in them, but not bitcoin. I was in that situation too. Now you can actually buy real Bitcoin in your retirement account. I'm talking about owning your private keys and using tax-advantaged dollars to do it too.
