  1. a16z Podcast: What to Know about GDPR

    with Lisa Hawke (@ldhawke) and Steven Sinofsky (@stevesi)

    Given concern around data breaches, the EU Parliament finally passed GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) after four years of preparation and debate; it goes into enforcement on May 25, 2018. Though it originated in Europe, GDPR is a form of long-arm jurisdiction that affects many U.S. companies — including most software startups, because data collection and user privacy touch so much of what they do. With EU regulators focusing most on transparency, GDPR affects everything from user interface design to engineering to legal contracts and more.

    That’s why it’s really about "privacy by design", argues former environmental scientist and lawyer Lisa Hawke, who spent most of her career in regulatory compliance in the oil industry and is now Vice President of Security and Compliance at a16z portfolio company Everlaw (she also serves as Vice Chair for Women in Security and Privacy). And it’s also why, observes a16z board partner Steven Sinofsky, everyone — from founders to product managers to engineers and others — should think about privacy and data regulations (like GDPR, HIPAA, etc.) as a culture… not just as "compliance".

    Many people have searched and searched for the holy grail of investing: a portfolio that provides a good return with low risk that can weather the economic storms, no matter what they be. Some feel that they have found it in The Permanent Portfolio.

    The Permanent Portfolio is a concept that was designed by Harry Browne, an investment advisor and Libertarian candidate for President in 1996 and 2000.

    The Permanent Porfolio was designed to deal with the broad movements in the general economy, including:



    Tight money/recession


    In order to profit from each of these economic cycles, the permanent portfolio holds an equal allocation to each of these four asset classes:





    In today’s show we discuss the Permanent Portfolio with Jake Desyllas from The Voluntary Life. We discuss the design and philosophy behind it as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the approach. Enjoy the show!

  5. Podcast 02 - Adopting a Life of Minimalism - HisandHerFI

    Is minimalism the ultimate side-kick to financial independence and retiring early? In our case it was the catalyst that helped Bethany get on this path to FI. This thought helped us evaluate what “things” actually brought us happiness. This meant for Charles having to overcome his impulse spending habits and for Bethany to tame her one-click Amazon shopping trigger finger.

    We explore how value can be perceived differently between Men and Women. What we saw each other buying didn’t always correlate to our own sense of value. We even go into how advertising of products is different based on gender and there is more of a pressure on women to buy certain products at a highly marked up price.

    Differences also come up between Charles wanting to be frugal and buy those on sale Costco bulk items in large quantity to Bethany’s minimalism and buying something only after it was gone. These differences in opinion require some give and take in our relationship and an acceptance that difference in thinking is okay and what balances us out.

    So grab your headphones and enjoy the show!

  6. Podcast 01 - Our 3 Roadblocks to Pursuing Financial Independence - HisandHerFI

    Welcome again to the official launch of the HisandHerFI podcast. We are starting off the season with our beginning. This is a look into how we discovered FI for Her and Him. What started as a way to try and save money by learning about travel hacking morphed into this complete lifestyle change into a pursuit to FI.

    We had a rough start on this path as we had to overcome relationship hurdles first. We never really talked about finances together and my first attempt to bring it up didn’t go so well.
