5 Podcast Recommendations for Working Remotely

Based on the current situation, I'm certainly consuming a lot more podcast content these days. I typically have one playing in the background, if I'm not on a Zoom meeting.

We all know that The VentureFizz Podcast is your go-to podcast for interviews with founder & investors from Boston & NYC, but if you are looking for some additional recommendations, here are some great podcasts to check out. There's a mix of interviews across entrepreneurship, sports, and music, where you'll be inspired, educated, or just simply entertained.

This Week in Startups - Hosted by Jason Calacanis
I have been a long time follower of Jason's podcast and it just keeps getting better, even after over 1,000 episodes. Each week, you'll find lots of interviews with top entrepreneurs, investors, and more.

Don't miss: Max Lobovsky, Formlabs; Sarah Tavel, Benchmark; George Zachary, CRV; Dan Rose, Coatue.

Don't Miss: Kobe Bryant - a legend who is known for his work ethic and mamba mentality, but did you know that Kobe Bryant didn't score a single point during a summer basketball league when he was about 11 years old. Not one point. From there... he went to work and practiced, practiced, practiced. Two years later he was the top player in the state.

Don't miss: what if you had two hours to interview Eddie Vedder and Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam about the early days of the band, music from the 90's era, sports, and their latest album. It's such an awesome interview. Towards the end, they talk about a memorable show at Great Woods (now the Xfinity Center) in 1998. I was there - here's the ticket stub:
