7 masters of scale

Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman

Interviews with iconic leaders and rising stars of scale companies.


By Reid Hoffman

Description & Steve’s take

Masters of Scale is an original podcast in which LinkedIn co-founder and Greylock partner Reid Hoffman sets out to describe and prove theories that explain how great entrepreneurs take their companies from zero to a gazillion. Most episodes begin with an entertaining tale that sets the stage for Reid to reveal a new theory about scaling. It then unfolds like a detective story as he tests and turns the idea with some of the most iconic masters of scale on the planet. At the end of each episode we come full circle to where we started – a notion, theory, or hunch that starts to make a lot of sense. Much more than just an interview show, this is a genre-defining series on how to think boldly and differently about the world.

Hoffman treats the podcast like a lecture so you don’t miss any points – useful, albeit less relaxing.

Odd Lots

Infinite Loops

Interviews in an individual style
By Jim O'Shaughnessy

Description & Steve’s take

Sometimes we get caught up in what feels like infinite loops when we try to figure things out. Markets go up and down, research is presented and then refuted, and we wind up right back where we started. The goal of this podcast is to learn how we can reset our thinking on issues that leaves us with a better understanding as to why we think the way we think and how we might be able to change that, to avoid going in infinite loops and thoughts. Hosts, Jim O’Shaughnessy and Jamie Catherwood, hope to offer you a fresh perspective on a variety of issues and look at them through a multi-faceted lens. Including history, philosophy, art, science, linguistics, and quantitative analysis. And help you become a better investor and also a more nuanced thinker.

The Business Brew

In-depth discussions about investing.
By Bill Brewster


This podcast’s mission is to dig deep into the thought patterns and analysis of investors and business people. The podcast stemmed from Bill Brewster consistently feeling like he was listening to prepackaged material while listening to podcasts. Instead, he wanted long form, in depth, discussions about finance, capital allocation, and the psychology of investing/business.

Joseph’s view: Bill Brewster launched his own podcast in late 2020. The Business Brew goes deep into the minds of top investors and business people. Not just on matters of business, but on matters of life as well. Bill comes across as a perfectionist and I especially enjoy how natural the conversations are. Which definitely leads to deeper insights from the guests.
