A couple of months ago my pal Chamath texted me and said “I want to do a podcast with me and you.”
We discussed some names and landed on “All In,” as a tribute to our mutual friendship over poker. This was during the pandemic and in an election year, so there was plenty to talk about above and beyond technology, finance, and entrepreneurship, so we had a full docket of issues to work from.
We invited two other poker buddies to come on the pod, David Sacks and David Friedberg, and got into a quick rhythm given the massive brainpower of the two Davids.
We’ve now done 14 episodes and the podcast quickly went from the top 50 to 25 and then top three technology podcasts on Apple’s quirky podcast rankings.
People have responded in a deep and meaningful way to the podcast, tell us that it’s their favorite listen when we drop an episode every couple of weeks. People say they love the friendship and comradery they feel as we laugh it up while discussing and debating the most important issues of our time.
Fans tell me they wish the rest of the media world was more like the All In podcast, where folks listen and appreciate each other–even when they disagree. In fact, I think we appreciate each other MORE when we disagree, because it feels like we’re learning, evolving or simply getting to some central truths.
Anyway, I’m not sure if many of you come to the blog any more, but I thought I would post this to give a little background on how this whole thing got started and let you know how to find the podcast.

For fun Chamath suggested we launch an angel syndicate, so we put up a form for accredited investor to sign up at here: https://www.thesyndicate.com/allin
At the time of me posting this, 3,000 of you signed up to invest with us–which is nuts! It took me six years to build my angel syndicate to 5,500 members (!!!). Note: if you signup for the All In syndicate you’ll also seem my deal flow, but not the other way around. So if you’re a member of my syndicate at thesyndicate.com you need to signup again for the All In syndicate.
