Venture capital is an industry where topic expertise and industry connections are paramount to success, so it’s not surprise that branded company podcasts are becoming widespread as a marketing tool. And leading the charge arguably is Andreessen Horowitz with their flagship show:
The show consistently facilitates interesting conversations about tech and investing. It’s been around for so long that while I can tell it’s on episode 767 now, I don’t know exactly when the show first published. One thing I particularly like is that a16z embraces sharing the insider insights that help power their startup investments, rather than keeping these details secretive internally.
The company now has a network of podcasts with some additional great ones on specific topics like crypto and healthcare. The hosts of the flagship a16z podcast vary, but shoutout to very long time editor-in-chief and showrunner Sonal Chokshi!
