Hello and welcome back to Equitya podcast about the business of startups, where we dig into the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.

This was a live week on the podcast, meaning Mary Ann and Alex and Natasha and Grace teamed up with the fine audio and visual folks at our mothership Yahoo to not only record the show, but do this for, well yes, all of you! It’s fun to record live, and we’ll do it again in two weeks!

What have we started? The following:

  • Deals of the week: HomeLister wants to make selling your home more of a DIY, and cheaper; The Degreed co-founder returns to the company he helped start, through another company he helped start; and can’t chatbots suck in the future?
  • Coalition: What happens when you cross a small venture capital fund, a large network of operators and a shared benefit? The coalition wants to find out.
  • laid off: Backstage has been cutting its staff to the limit, while we saw smaller percentage cuts at Substack this week. Both rounds of layoffs were starting points for questions and discussion about the show.
  • Robin Hood: Will the company, which is besieged by a stock rock bottom and declining consumer opinion, sell?

Equity is off Monday due to the holiday, but returns three times in the following four days. Then chat!

Shares drop every Monday at 7am PDT and Wednesday and Friday at 6am PDT, so subscribe to us Apple Podcasts Cloudy Spotify and all casts.
