We exist in a constant state of learning. Whether that be from wins or failures, articles or books or - today's spotlight - podcasts. Below is a listing of some of our favorite podcasts and the smart ones that recommended them to us:
Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman, recommended to us initially by Mutual of Omaha CEO James Blackledge, this has quickly become one of the mainstays in our lineup. Some of our favorite episodes include interviews with Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook, Selina Tobaccowala of Evite and Brian Chesky of Airbnb.
a16z by Andreessen Horowitz, one of TSC Cofounder Nathan Preheim's personal favorites, this series ensures you stay atop of the latest trends, go deep on interesting successes within venture and continue to develop as a professional in the startup/venture space.
The Inside/Outside Podcast hosted by our very own Startup Collaborative adjuncts Brian Ardinger and Josh Berry. This podcast takes a harder look at what trends are emerging in corporate innovation and venture. It is a must-listen for anyone pitching corporations as customers or investors AND anyone in the corporate innovation space looking to stay on top of trends.
The Tim Ferris Show, let's give credit to Cofounder and CEO of Liveby Cory Scott on this one. A mix of high performers across all categories, Ferris goes in-depth on what the journey to success entails.
How I Built This with Guy Raz on NPR is a fixture in Dundee Venture Capital Partner Beth Engel's iPhone playlist. It's all about the story behind the story of entrepreneurship and innovation.
Recode Decode hosted by Kara Swisher, is a mainstay in TSC Cofounder Erica Wassinger's arsenal. Staying up-to-date on the news of our tech, startup and venture community in real-time, this podcast is hosted by one of the industry's most respected journalists.
The Pitch hosted by Josh Muccio features real VC pitch sessions. It's a good binge if you're going into a fundraising round. You hear the good, bad and ugly of pitching venture capitalists.
Reply All is another favorite from the Dundee Venture Capital team. This is tagged as a podcast about all things internet, but in truth, it is about humanity and how technology weaves throughout it.
Startup dives into what it really takes to get a high-growth company up and running. It's - what Median Cofounder Derek Homann calls - the meta of all podcasts.
The Twenty Minute VC by Harry Stebbings offers insights for anyone considering getting into venture investing from some of the world's most successful VCs and those on the rise.
The GaryVee Audio Experience is Caleb Ulffers' pick. Offering what Caleb calls major knowledge on marketing, this podcast might not be for everyone but it is diehard for lots. Those are just a few of the podcasts lingering on our playlists.
