Our Editor's Take

All-In with Chamath, Jason, Sacks & Friedberg is an eclectic podcast. The hosts are four successful Silicon Valley venture capitalists. They get real about tech, business, and money. They give raw opinions on market changes and global political developments. They're also longtime poker buddies. And they give their listeners an entertaining ride.

All-In with Chamath, Jason, Sacks & Friedberg started in 2020. And this show has gained cult-podcast status in entrepreneur and tech circles. Its hosts are Jason Calacanis, Chamath Palihapitiya, David Sacks, and David Friedberg. Each has impressive qualifications. All four started their own formidable business ventures. They also became early investors in now-major market players like Uber, Airbnb, Trello, and SpaceX.

In each hour-long episode, the All-In hosts discuss global issues. But they do so from a business/investor angle. They offer perspectives on how the economy could get back on track. And they invite expert "guesties" to share the stage and talk about their unique opinions on the topics at hand. These include Elon Musk (Tesla, SpaceX), Nate Silver (FiveThirtyEight), and Tom Goldstein (SCOTUSblog).

There's a big difference between All-In and other tech podcasts. Here, listeners won't find any ads. This podcast also has no set agenda. Rather, the hosts have a low-key, fun, yet stimulating environment. Sometimes, the "besties" will broadcast to live audiences during events. For example, industry leaders come together at the"All-In Summit" to discuss current issues. But they don't do so in a boring way. Instead, they get down to business over a cheeky game of poker and some liquid refreshments. After all, they're still poker buddies.
