    Mark Gerson of GLG on Charity, Investing, Inflation, and Valuations

    You yutes have it so good. Mark and I used to walk up hill in the snow both ways to school, we had Hebrew class 8 days a week, and we had to read actual books at an actual library. I first met Mark about 15 years ago in the early days of Stocktwits; at the Macanudo Cigar bar. We talk charitable work, market cycles, investing, inflation, and valuation. It was good to catch up. I hope you enjoy our conversation and appreciate how good you have it.

    Kelvin Beachum Jr of The Arizona Cardinals on on Investing, Leveraging your Network, and Parenting with Intention

    Kelvin Beachum Jr of The Arizona Cardinals on on Investing, Leveraging your Network, and Parenting with Intention

    It's Arizona Cardinal Kelvin Beachum Jr's second appearance on Panic with Friends, but he also holds the distinction of being the first in-person guest in our brand new studio! Kelvin is now in his 10th season in the NFL, and he's an investor at heart. He caught the bug early in his NFL career from teammates; there were many locker room conversations on traditional investing, real estate, and of late, even NFTs. He's into startups too, always looking for what's new and innovative. Basically what's next, whether that's crypto, web3, or the metaverse. Kelvin continues to build an incredible network in the venture capital world. I hope you enjoy our conversation.

    Jeff Richards of GGV Capital on the Cloud, Digital Health, E-Commerce, and the Digitization of Everything

    We're off to a bit of a rocky start to the new year. And that's why I called in my friend Jeff Richards to help make sense of it all. This episode marks Jeff's fourth stop on Panic with Friends since we started almost 2 years ago. People talk about bubbles all day, and I've been talking about these tiny bubbles we're witnessing right now --the ones that just pricked. So Jeff's here to talk about fundamentals versus valuations and the big picture as we come 70, 80, 90 percent, whatever it is, out of COVID for better or worse.

    Panic With Friends: The Year Ahead in Public and Private Markets

    Panic With Friends: The Year Ahead in Public and Private Markets

    It's our last Panic of 2021. Knut and I take a look at what’s coming in 2022. But you can’t look ahead without taking a look back, so we discuss what we’ve learned from traders and investors and operators over the past year; and some themes like Miami, NFTs, TANG, Crypto, tiny bubbles, and speculation is entertainment. Looking ahead at the new version of the web, web3 or whatever you want to call it, it’s more than just ‘decentralization’ and the blockchain. We’ll need great companies that will be defined by skilled operators.
