Guest selection is great, and I like the balance and interviewer / guest dynamics

The guests on the show are great, but the host interrupts and talks over the guests all the time.

Host interrupts too much and doesn’t add value. Otherwise the content is great

Great pod!

Listening to this podcast is all worth it! It’s jam-packed! Gives so much value! Truly inspiring guests! All I could ever ask for to level up my biz!

Great content, but the primary host/Interviewer interrupts the guests quite a lot with her own thoughts. It’s unfortunate - please, let them speak.

Like this episode and the rest, a16z, Sonal and team really worked on fishing out first principle experts to talk about subject matter which brings wonderful insights based on data sets that they have seen which others don’t. Very awesome and keep it going!

As a dumb rube who didn’t go to business school, I sometimes get lost in sections about “first principles” or “ infomediaries”. Is it possible to at least explain some of these terms when they come up? Otherwise I love the pod, it’s always super informative and brief which is refreshing.

Tech news with an obvious but up-front neoliberal capitalist perspective.

Just started listening and the emoji episode got me. Thanks a16z
AmaëlS via Apple Podcasts · France · 10/15/19
I tried listening to the episode on capitalism, technology, and the environment, but it was a joke. The guest MIT economist was making 300-year old arguments from Adam Smith in support of capitalism that have been debunked by Marx, Luxemburg, Lenin, and other non-bourgeois economists. He seemed...Read full review »

I like the variety of topics but please do something about the "S's"-hissing sound>One of your presenters sounds like a constant Ssssssss to me (sort of). I can not listen to the podcast unless I have a way to EQ this out. (as much as possible). My ears are fine, in case...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to this podcast for years now and it’s been super helpful in both working at companies, starting and now running my own (Puma Browser, check it out if you care about privacy or new ways to monetize content 🙃)

Could be terrific but don’t pander or sensationalize. The material is awesome without excessive interpretations from Sonal. Let your experts speak. Audience is sophisticated don’t need to dumb down as to how terrible the opioid crisis is. If you must shed a tear do it in private, be brave during...Read full review »

Some good content but many of the partners who ‘interview’ just talk over their guests: for instance Chris Dixon on the latest blockchain episode goes on massive rants and barely lets his guest get a word in!
OC1384 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/09/19
Eclectic topics and guests draw you in - however, sometimes there’s quite the verbal battle for “most buzz words” in a single sentence or battle for the mic. Great insights also delivered - and with some work and self-reflection they could really have a deeper impact.
MrHokie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/19
Super insightful conversations, great guests, and deep-dives into pressing topics. Audio quality can be a bit awkward at times but overally a great show.
bennyb_ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/19
Incredible signal-to-noise ratio!
jjjjhhhh99 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 01/26/19
Some topics better than others which can’t be helped given wide ranging nature of topics (not every topic relevant to every listener). What can be helped is how certain moderators/interviewers seem to wish they could do all the talking. Too often the guest gets talked over by the interviewer...Read full review »

The interviewer needs to shut up and stop interrupting the guests. Completely disrupts the flow and very disrespectful to the guests. Listeners are here for the guests, not the interviewer.

For the episode on the book “Farsighted “ — they managed to make the cast > audiobook . Which is in itself an achievement. 😘😘😘

Can you find another topic please?
DrewBroadley via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 08/23/18
The subject matter is also interesting
Joseph Bassett via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/20/18
These are consistently old. Would be awesome if it wasn’t for the huge delay between recording these conversations and when they release the podcasts.
TenderWolf via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/18
Great example of people talking over each other all the time, and just waiting to get their point in. I wish they would actually listen to each other especially when they bring on someone to interview. Great content but puts me off every time on how much arrogance comes through.
Xlibrium via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/26/18
Want to like the content but the cuts of dialogue are so rough and obvious that it’s distracting. Didn’t you guys invest in Gimlet? Get those guys to produce your eps.
dave_mikes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/26/18
The topics explored by the podcast are far-reaching and touch on tough questions facing society today. But for such sophisticated content, it is puzzling and annoying for the creators of the podcast to have the talking speed doubled in all their podcasts. It would seem ethical and correct to...Read full review »

Maybe the most underrated podcast out there.
Alex5902 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/07/18
A16Z covers a wide variety of topics in innovation and technology and has great interviews with executives and book authors in the space. The podcasts are well done and have no commercials and are usually about the right length for a work commute. The individual topics vary so if a particular...Read full review »

They're not all great but the podcasts that are great are really really great. I'm an entrepreneur so I find them extremely relevant but I think they're just really good discussions in general on tech, startups and businessRead full review »

I would pay money for this podcast. This is my absolute favorite number 1 podcast. Hallway style conversations about the future of technology, distribution, and scaling with the smartest people alive.

So that it can be easily accessible on android.
zach guo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/09/17
I like the different angle, that a16z is taking on startups. It allows for different views and insights.
Klaus Rt via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 11/26/17
Listening to the episodes like an addict. The podcasts touches some of the more fascinating topics. The depth of discussions is what sets it apart from anything else. - Vitaly Pecherskiy

Great interviewers

I’ve only listened to a few episodes, but I’m very surprised there are no reviews. A few of my coworkers both enjoy listening to this podcast and I decided to give it a try. The audio quality is great so far and the guest speakers are very well-spoken and amazing people. I’m learning a lot. They...Read full review »

This podcast covers a range of topics usually connected with the tech world. Unfortunately, they can't resist processing the life out of the audio by cutting silent gaps and accelerating the audio. It sounds like a Micro Machines commercial. Please release an unprocessed version of the podcast.Read full review »
spacebas via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/26/17
The production quality is quite poor. Many episodes DESPERATELY need de-essing, and are unlistenable because of it. In some cases the intro features a host who literally whistles when each ess sound comes up. This is easy to fix, but unfortunately I've already unsubscribed. Hopefully they...Read full review »

a16z is a great podcast that covers current trends in the business and tech industries. If you like information presented by great minds in these two industries, this is a great podcast for you.

Great conversations with some of the smartest people on the planet that help me keep up with tech and all other sorts of fields!

Fascinating conversations on emerging tech
Rai 1234987 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/16/17
I tune in for the analysis because the knowledge of the hosts and guests are very often a cut above the rest; that said, most episodes are essentialy giant, high-pressure verbal fire hoses of deep, deep analysis of very dense topics, each presented with absolutely no consideration whatsoever for...Read full review »

I don't love interview podcasts usually, but this one is great because it has good, relevant themes and multiple experts. The interviewers themselves are well versed in the topics, so it makes it fun to listen to.Read full review »

There's a lot of meat in the bone in regards to substance and quality of information but I couldn't tolerate the cadence and inflection in the presenters' voices. It was as though I was listening to high school students in a lunch room instead of a content-rich podcast. It's a...Read full review »
