The world’s investment capital is remarkably inhibited. 

Think about it. Who does society charge with taking financial risk? White men in grey suits with blue shirts. And how are they evaluated? By the degree to which they look like their peers.  

There is broad consensus this does not make sense, but it still predominates. The Free Money podcast was born to build something better. 

In each episode, my friend Ashby Monk and I will explore what’s keeping the world from investing in progress and get real answers from people in the know. We’ll take questions from our listeners and tell above-average jokes too.

I’m really excited to share this first episode where we talk about: 

  • The absurdity of “first fund” rules.

  • Jeff Epstein, the Zelig of financial chicanery.

  • How governance determines investor experience. 

  • Whether it’s wise to put early “boots on the ground” in frontier markets. 

  • How not to get drunk at industry conferences (and why people do it).
