Update from Executive Producer Henry Pickavet: “We’re aware that Alex inexplicably stopped talking mid-sentence towards the end of the episode. We’re working with him to improve his struggles in the art of conversation.”
Hello and welcome back to Equity, TechCrunch’s running social science experiment concerning the memorization of esoteric numbers and venture capital-themed podcast.
This week we had the full crew on deck, including Katie Roof, Matthew Lynley, and myself — Alex! — to dive into the biggest news of the week. We weren’t alone, thankfully, as Maveron partner Rebecca Kaden joined us in the studio to mull over the latest.
The news of the week was earnings-themed, unsurprisingly, including Amazon’s big revenue beat and profit miss, Alphabet’s slightly fretful growth and losses on its “Other Bets,” whatever the hell happened to Twitter during the San Francisco dawn, and Facebook’s continued triumphal parade.
We’d like to thank Rebecca for being a lot of fun, and you, for finally remembering to rate us on iTunes. We’ll see you all next week!
