We've all seen brands flirting with their audiences and each other over the years from Wendy's to Duolingo to Pedialyte. Oftentimes the brands doing the flirting make no sense and have no business being horny on main and leads to many awkward moments and slip-ups. It was all fun and games initially with the inclusion of internet slang like "BAE" and "bruh", but things escalated quickly once the COVID-19 pandemic hit and blue balls set in. Audiences turned on company socials screaming "silence, brand!" and "go to horny jail!" culminating in watchdog accounts like "Brands Saying Bae" deriding and making fun of the r/fellowkids energy companies like McDonald's, Virgin America, and Cheetos were giving. We couldn't cover everything in this episode, but Jon and Harland will get to the bottom of the Radio Shack rebrand next week while Kyle is gone, so stick around!

Venture Unlocked: The playbook for venture capital managers.

Follow me @samirkaji for my thoughts on the venture market, with a focus on the continued evolution of the VC landscape.This week we are joined by Ravi Viswanathan, Founder and Managing Partner of NewView Capital, a growth and secondaries focused fund founded in 2018 with over $2.2 billion under management. NVC invests in technology companies through both direct investments and curated portfolio acquisitions, pairing funding with significant operational support. Focusing primarily on growth-stage companies, the NVC portfolio includes Plaid, Duolingo, Forter, Hims & Hers, MessageBird, and Scopely.Ravi brings a wealth of experience around growth and secondary markets to the conversation, and it was really fun to discuss both of those areas in detail, particularly in light of the change in the markets over the last year. First, a word from our sponsor:Allocate is the digital operating system for investors looking to build and manage world class private portfolios within venture capital and other technology focused private assets. Despite the enormous growth of the private markets and the rapid increase of retail demand for private alternatives, investing in the highest quality private assets within the innovation sector remains inaccessible and opaque.Go to allocate.co to apply to be a member and join 400+ active Allocate users. About Ravi Viswanathan:Ravi is an experienced company builder and dedicated partner to entrepreneurs and investors. In 2018, Ravi raised $1.35B to architect an innovative portfolio acquisition of 31 companies from NEA to found NewView Capital (NVC).Prior to founding NVC, Ravi was a General Partner at NEA, where he oversaw investment in enterprise software and fintech companies and co-led the firm’s Technology Venture Growth Equity effort. His investments of note include Braintree (acquired by PayPal), MuleSoft (acquired by Salesforce), GlobalLogic (acquired by Apax Partners), TeleAtlas (Euronext: TA, acquired by TomTom), Cyence (acquired by Guidewire), Acquia (acquired by Vista Equity Partners), Scout (acquired by Workday), Plaid, and Forter. Ravi spent several years at Goldman Sachs in the Private Equity Technology Practice before joining NEA. He began his career in consulting at McKinsey & Co and as a scientist at Raychem Corporation.Ravi holds an MBA from Wharton, a PhD in Chemical Engineering from University of California Santa Barbara, and a BS in Bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania. He is also the Chair of the Wharton Entrepreneurship Advisory Board.In this episode we discuss:01:29 How the 2022 downturn compares to 2000 and 200803:20 The effect of market conditions on growth investing06:51 Why VCs keep making the same mistakes in bull markets and factors that lead to the most recent one09:22 What led to the launch of NVC in 201813:24 How Ravi sold the unique structure of NVC to founders and LPs15:55 Team building through the transition into NVC18:51 How Ravi managed communication around his conviction to close20:45 Navigating different LP considerations when putting together NVC23:38 What the next 6-12 months will look like in the venture markets28:06 State of the secondary markets in 202232:15 The stigma of selling positions early as managers and LPs35:50 The types of firms that are well-positioned for success in the current marketI’d love to know what you took away from this conversation with Ravi.

Today's guest on the Expat Money Show is Chuck Smith the co-founder of the Polyglot Gathering, contributor of Duolingo's Esperanto course and founder of the Esperanto Wikipedia, among other Esperanto and polyglot projects.  He had the idea for a GPS device to find fellow Esperanto speakers while travelling through Brazil in 2002 but needed to wait 15 years for the technology to catch up, so he could pursue this dream.  Now he looks forward to meeting the challenges ahead to help people everywhere connect to make the world a better place.   TODAY'S CONVERSATION WITH CHUCK What is Esperanto, where did it come from, and why is Esperanto important? Why do people use Esperanto?  Does Esperanto have any politics attached to it? Is it a nation-state type of language?  What would a new community in a country look like if Esperanto were the main language, instead of many different languages being spoken?  Listen in to find out where the Universal Congress of Esperanto will take place this year, what country and when? You might want to attend! Find out how many people speak Esperanto worldwide and how long it took them to grasp the new language. If you are a monoglot speaker, and this is the first language you will learn outside of your native language, find out how difficult it will be to learn Esperanto. What are the stumbling blocks of why Esperanto does not have 20 million or 200 million speakers? #1 system recommended by Chuck Smith to learn Esperanto, hands down. I talk with Chuck about his app ‘Amikumu,' what it does and how we can all learn about other Esperanto speakers when we travel to new countries or a different city.  Chuck and I discuss how someone would really learn the language of Esperanto, what you need to know and do to be fluent and how long that would take. You would be amazed at the number of hours required to pick up a new language, depending on what your native language is and what you want to learn in a new language. It's not as bad as most people think. Best advice, tips and tricks if you want to learn the language of Esperanto!   RELATED EPISODES  https://expatmoneyshow.com/episodes/best-foreign-language-learning-techniques-strategies-and-methods-for-shortcutting-your-language-learning-journey (169: Best Foreign Language Learning Techniques, Strategies, And Methods For Shortcutting Your Language Learning Journey) https://expatmoneyshow.com/episodes/john-fotheringham/ (147: Full Immersion Language Learning Before Leaving Home – John Fotheringham) https://expatmoneyshow.com/episodes/sarah-tarvin/ (144: How To Raise Your Children To Be Multilingual – Sarah Tarvin)   HOW TO CONTACT CHUCK SMITH https://amikumu.com/about-us/ (Amikumu.com) chuck@amikumu.com   CONCLUSION Honestly, if you want to learn a second language and you're struggling with Spanish, French or German, then Esperanto is a great language to start with. The time allotted to become fluent is considerably shorter than any other language, and the benefits of learning Esperanto are really worth the effort.

A special preview of the podcast, Unsung Science with David Pogue from CBS News. Journalist and author David Pogue finds the untold creation stories behind the most mind-blowing advances in science and tech—and hears from the characters involved—from their first inspiration to the times they almost gave up. This episode looks at the bad guys who used software bots to sign up for millions of fake email accounts—for sending out spam. Then, PhD student Luis Von Ahn stopped them. He invented the CAPTCHA, that website login test where you have to decipher the distorted image of a word. Or you have to find the traffic lights or fire hydrants in a grid of nine blurry photos. Those tests help to keep down the volume of spam, spyware, and misinformation; they advance the clarity of digitized books and the intelligence of self-driving cars; and, by the way, they made a handsome profit. The only problem: We HATE those tests! Guest: Luis Von Ahn, co-inventor of CAPTCHA, co-inventor and CEO of Duolingo. Hear more episodes of Unsung Science at https://unsungscience.com/.

Timestamps: 1:08 - From ETH to Carnegie Mellon 5:28 - Not going to Silicon Valley 8:03 - Freemium and philanthropy 10:22 - A/B testing at Duolingo 18:23 - The Duolingo IPO About Severin Hacker: Severin Hacker is the co-founder and CTO of Duolingo, the world's most popular language learning app. He holds a PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University and previously worked as a research intern at Microsoft. It was during his time at Carnegie Mellon that he met his co-founder, Luis von Ahn, with whom he soon began to work on a research project which would later become Duolingo. The project aimed to identify what the hardest part of language learning was and how to make it easier — they soon discovered the power of gamification in this respect and ran hundreds of A/B tests in order to make the Duolingo experience as fun as possible, resulting in a much higher retention rate than other language learning apps. In fact, Severin identifies A/B testing as Duolingo's “secret sauce”, and says these tests focus on assessing 3 things: how well the new feature teaches, how engaging the new feature is (i.e., retention) and how it contributes to monetization. Duolingo's mission is to make great education universally accessible, which is why it uses a freemium model that allows free users to access all of the content under certain conditions, and paying users to access this same content with much less restriction. In order to maintain their independence and keep working towards their mission, Duolingo did not aim for a trade sale but instead went public on NASDAQ in 2021, with a market capitalization of $3.5B. Their IPO behind them, they hope to expand the Duolingo offer to first language acquisition and math learning. Memorable Quotes: "You should only pursue a PhD if you want to become a professor. It's not necessary for entrepreneurship." "By this point, Duolingo is too expensive to be acquired."
