If you’re interested in learning how to build a successful startup, one of the best ways to spend your free time is by listening to and learning about what path others who have come before took.
Two great resources for this are:
This Week in Startups - Jason Calacanis has been doing this show for a number of years now and week-after-week he comes up with some great guests and content. If you pay attention, you’ll get a lot of nuggets out of each interview.
PandoDaily Fireside chats - About once a month Sarah Lacy does an in-depth interview with someone influential in the startup world (or someone that has built a really interesting startup from nothing).
All of these interviews are pretty lengthy (I don’t think any are under an hour) - but if you’re really serious about improving your chances in building a great company…you’ll get A LOT of value out of hearing the real backstory, opinions, and challenges that are revealed throughout these interviews.
