What. A. Year.
Hello and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.
In honor of 2022 finally coming to a close, the Equity crew is getting reflective. We dug through the archives, and this week, we’re listening back to Alex, Natasha and Mary Ann’s coverage of the biggest stories of the year as they unfolded.
Here’s what the trio got into with help from guest hosts, Becca Szkutak and Anita Ramaswamy:
- How Alex jinxed us from the start when he asked for more tech drama (TC+)
- Early signs of the downturn to come with Better.com and the human cost of layoffs
- The will-they-won’t-they courtship of Elon Musk and Twitter
- The downfall of FTX (TC+) and why you should never let FOMO guide your investments (TC+)
Some of these stories are still evolving as we type, but don’t fret – we’ll catch you up in the new year.
Of course, we can’t sign off without saying thank you to all of you for sticking by us during this rollercoaster of a year, and we can’t wait to see you in 2023!
