The show has a really light and humorous tone. This, together with high-quality guests and topics, makes it really easy to listen to the 30-minute episodes.
When a friend of mine first told me about this entrepreneur podcast hosted by Reid Hoffman, my first reaction was “send me the link!”.
If you don’t know Reid Hoffman and you’re wondering why this reaction, he is a very charismatic entrepreneur and venture capitalist from Silicon Valley. Among other things, he co-founded PayPal and LinkedIn, and was an early investor in companies like Facebook and Airbnb. Very interesting person, definitely check him out.
