Three Cartoon Avatars: Promo
00:00:52

Friends, partially known for their work as venture capitalists and entrepreneurs but more known for their shitposting on Twitter, get together every Saturday morning. Logan Bartlett, a Partner at Redpoint Ventures, Nikita Bier, Founder of tbh acquired by Facebook and CEO of a stealth new company, and Zak Kukoff, an early stage investor at General Catalyst take their group chat to podcast form.

They’re going to cover the biggest stories in tech, but the parts you won’t hear anywhere else. We’re talking the stupid stuff - the memes, the Twitter beefs, the idiot billionaires and basically all the things  in the tech world that they actually talk about in their group chat.

Subscribe now because you won’t want to miss an episode!
