about this episode

It’s the News Roundtable! Today Jason hosts Liz Gannes, Senior Editor of Re/code, and Matt Mazzeo, VC at Lowercase Capital. Liz covered the trial of Ellen Pao vs. Kleiner Perkins and shares her courtroom insights and analysis about the case and its ramifications. The trio then dives deep into a discussion of gender discrimination and unconscious bias in Silicon Valley and VC culture (including a revealing look into how the venture capital system actually functions), and emerges with key takeaways and thoughts on facilitating dialogue and forward progress. And it’s off to the races with the latest in mobile live video and all the ways Periscope & Meerkat are creating content, forging new communities, and changing the social game … forever? (At the very least, you should follow @mazzeo to catch his daily Morning Coffee streaming sessions!) Stay to the end to see Jason wager a bet with Matt over the upcoming Presidential election (will this be a Nixon/Kennedy moment?), a lively debate over Jay Z’s new music service Tidal, and further reflections and reactions from Liz on the jury’s verdict at the Pao trial.
