THE MONEY EPISODE features Sterling Witzke, a venture capitalist at Winklevoss Capital – yes, the Olympic athletes from The Social Network. Host Christine Schuster and co-host Maddy Simpson chat about buying expensive clogs and spending money on themselves after a break-up. Somehow they end the episode with a reflection on the importance of living within their means.
Witzke graduated from Stanford University and Wharton School of Business and brings ideas and dreams into reality. She helps people who want to change the world find a way to do it. Originally from South Dakota, her dad always told her she could do whatever a man could—but better.
WITTY RANTER PODCAST takes on vague themes each week within art and culture. The host generally knows nothing about the topic, but can talk for hours about it with her co-host. She also brings in edgy guests – such as Wired magazine’s Liz Stinson, The Moth’s Erin Barker or NPR’s Nicky Hammar – who know what they’re talking about but don’t take themselves too seriously.
