@harrystebbings What I liked about it was hearing you have a good time with it and the energy was good. I would just trust you to do what feels natural in the moment more than any kind of singular approach. You have excellent guests and a short show length, so I think your approach works well: genuinely being polite and passionate, but moving through things quickly and letting guests talk. 👍 What I like best is learning things you can't easily find online and when VCs (and founders) become more dimensional as people with personalities, pasts, and intelligence beyond the persona they tend to project and promote. FWIW, I listen on 2x speed (as I do with any podcasts that don't include Marc Andreessen, Benedict Evans, or other people who speak at 2x already). Keep 'em coming!
