The first episode interviews Alastair Mitchell, partner at investment fund EQT Ventures, and Pari Singh, CEO of "the GitHub for engineering" Flow Engineering, about what the startup ecosystem can learn from the dotcom crash and 2007-8 financial crises — events that appear to have repeated themselves with the current tech downturn and dramatic fall of Silicon Valley Bank.

The podcast delves into the similarities and differences between these events, providing practical advice for startups and tips on what the tech sector should still be optimistic about.
