    EP 82 Kyla Scanlon and the vibecession

    We have become fans of Kyla Scanlon over the last year for her videos explaining the economy and “what is going on”, especially in a way that connects to young people. She has a new book “In this Economy” that we *highly* recommend. Kyla is a rare personality that can both deeply understand what’s going […]

  • EP 81 How to close a deal

    EP 81 How to close a deal

    We often get asked about what we have learned in our careers that we wish we knew earlier. One skill I wish I knew earlier but *didn’t know I lacked* was the art of making a deal happen. From closing a job offer to negotiating a house, I see some mechanics come up in everything […]

    EP 77: Heathrow, skilled immigration, Wrestlemania 40, Llama 3 and more

    We did another solo episode this week. First we needed to get back to skilled immigration since we were overwhelmed with the response we got. We then talked about our big new Heathrow presence.

    EP 76: Skilled immigration in the US- H1bs, green card caps and more.

    There are few issues Aarthi and I care more about than skilled immigration, certainly few that has impacted us more personally. We have always wanted to do an episode on this and we teamed up with founder turned investor Debarghya “Deedy” Das to do it.

    EP 75: Vivek Ramaswamy on Tiktok, wokeness, crypto, immigration, Jake Paul vs Tyson and more.

    Whatever you may think of him, Vivek Ramaswamy went from relative unknown in mainstream media and politics to having household name recognition in a very short time. In this episode, we get into it all: his take on the recent TikTok “ban” bill, legal/skilled immigration (a issue that matters to many in tech), his usage of podcasts and the internet to build an audience and even some fun asides like his prediction on Jake Paul vs Tyson. Vivek isn’t shy and this won’t disappoint.
