The drive behind the Altogether Show is simple—we’re in this all together. We believe people should root for each others’ success instead of tearing each other down. Our goal is to encourage and challenge everyone we encounter to be the best version of themselves. On our show, you’ll hear Eric’s unfiltered interviews with interesting and untraditional entrepreneurs who ignored boundaries and followed their instincts and own paths—and now empower others to do the same.
Andy Weissman - Managing Partner at Union Square Ventures and Aspiring Music Journalist and Critic
When you mix venture capital with a love of music, you get this week’s guest, Andy Weissman — managing partner at Union Square Ventures.
After graduating from Wesleyan University, Andy received his JD from Georgetown before making his way to startups and venture capital. He describes himself as someone who stumbles through life looking for peace, happiness, and comfort, and I know him as someone who is unlike any other venture capitalist I’ve ever met.
In this episode, we talk about how luck and serendipity collide and how he makes his investment decisions at USV— especially when a company's mission and purpose speak to him.
Jonathan McBride - Former Personnel Director for President Obama and Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion at BlackRock
People can thrive professionally in different environments and roles, and this week’s guest has done so. From entrepreneur to White House staffer to his leadership role at BlackRock—the largest asset manager in the world—Jonathan McBride has always followed his instincts.
Alex Lieberman - Co-Founder & CEO of Morning Brew
If ever you needed proof that you can build a profitable and valuable media franchise in the US that doesn't pick political sides, the Morning Brew is it. Just last week, they were purchased by Business Insider’s parent company, Insider Inc., and in this episode, I’m speaking with Morning Brew’s Co-Founder and Crew Leader, Alex Lieberman.
When Alex started his senior year at the University of Michigan, he already had a job offer from Morgan Stanley to trade on their mortgage desk—leaving him with some “free” time. He chose to do what nobody does with this kind of free time: summarize business stories into a digestible and understandable email and send them to his friends still in the job hunt. Mikey liked it.
This email would eventually become “Morning Brew,” and I highly recommend you sign up using my referral link, so you can drink your morning brew while reading it.
We talk about the Brew’s evolution from unscalable processes and zero full-time employees to today, where 60 employees produce general and industry- specific, bitesize content for a readership of more than 2.5 million people.
Jenny Lefcourt - VC, Entrepreneur, and Stanford GSB Dropout
In this episode, I’m speaking with Freestyle.VC Partner, Jenny Lefcourt. We grew up together in Miami, Florida, and it’s been fun to watch her professional life evolve into what it is today. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, Jenny became a CPA at Arthur Andersen—where she discovered public accounting wasn’t for her. After a couple of years working for a startup in Silicon Valley, she attended the Stanford Graduate School of Business, before dropping out to start her own company. We talk about how—after an initial bumpy start—she discovered her true passion and became the co-founder of two successful startups, eventually leading to her current role as a venture capitalist.
Howard Lindzon - Stocktwits Co-Founder, VC, and Definitive OG
In this episode, I’m speaking with Stocktwits Co-Founder and Venture Capitalist, Howard Lindzon. He’s also the co-founder of VC firm Social Leverage and the founder of hedge fund Lindzon Capital. With more than 20 years of investing experience, Howard shows a passion for the decentralization and democratization of investing, which makes him the perfect guest for the Altogether Show. We talk about how his “you do you” mindset helps him stay on his own course and maintain a positive outlook.
Nikhil Basu Trivedi - Author of Next Big Thing, Founding Member of Artsy, and Angel Investor
Nikhil found his growth mindset and desire to be challenged as a molecular biology major at Princeton University and eventually made his way towards becoming an angel investor. To date, he’s invested in many successful startups, with a strong track record in subscription-based companies—Literati, Imperfect Foods, The Farmer’s Dog, The Pill Club, and more. We talk about how growing up with parents who empowered him to carve his own path helped him become the person he is today.
