Excellent report by Andreessen Horowitz on the Podcast ecosystem and how to invest in it. Also some cool charts:
As discussed in our pitch, we think there's a massively overlooked opportunity to create a media franchise about Wall Street and NYC in the aughts (2000-2010).
We are addressing this in a few ways,
1) Creating an enormous pool of original content, averaging about one short story a week, and detailing the most insane stories we can recall about the period. (also on iTunes, Spotify etc.)
2) Contracting out a professional book pitch (Feb 2020)
3) Preparing a screen treatment with someone experienced in the business (2nd quarter, 2020).
4) Interviewing agents (okay, really just going out drinking around NY and talking to people)
