    Wordle's Blizzard of transparency

    Despite the fact that it is a holiday week here in the United States, tech news was, well, as nuts as it usually is. At this point anything else would be a shock.

    So what did we get to? All of this and more:

    How many unicorns are just piñatas filled with expired candy?

    How many unicorns are just piñatas filled with expired candy?

    This is our Wednesday show, where we niche down to a single topic, think about a question and unpack the rest. This week, Natasha and Alex dared to refresh perhaps the most common conversation in startups these days: the ubiquity, and resulting irrelevance, of unicorns.

    Equity Tuesday: What to make of the Microsoft-Blizzard deal

    This is our Monday (Tuesday) show, our short ramp into the week where we talk about the larger picture to get our feet wet. We're a day late due to an American holiday, and I can say later in the day with this thanks to my schedule. But, better late than never.

    Happily this week, we did not talk about NFTs, and I don’t think that we even said “token” a single time.

Great show. Wish they had more breadth

Love listening to this show. There is good banter and I usually learn a bunch. My only critique is they seem to exclusively cover specific kinds of tech startups. I wish they covered more on biotech startups.

Great show

Love this show - love the humor and snark that as an industry we usually can’t say or put into print. I feel the hosts share a little bit more “inside baseball” than what we usually get from the startup/investment publications/blogs. Dig the short episodes that I don’t have to commit too much time to, still get a burst of entertainment.

Dedicated listener

This podcast 💯 makes me a better investor, especially in my focus area of edtech + female founders. And so enjoyable to listen to! Great work and thank you.
