Eilot Brown is a Wall Street Journal Reporter who covers startups and venture capital. For the past year, much of his focus has been on completing his book on WeWork. We interviewed Eliot pre-pandemic, and invited him back for our first in-person interview in over 16 months. It was epic.

We talked to Eliot about the book and the (possible?) resurgence of WeWork because of the pandemic/hybrid work in general. We dig into more of the details as to what went wrong at the company, and Eliot provides some juicy details.

Eliot talks about his views on the current market environment and just how things have changed in the past 16 months of covering startups. We talk extensively about crypto, the market, and just how crazy and unpredictable things have been post pandemic.

Eliot covers a bunch of ground here with us, and this is a great 'return' for us to in person podcasting post pandemic. If you're a longtime fan of the show, or new to 'This is Your Life in Silicon Valley' - this is a great place to start.

We hope you enjoy!
