In this week’s show we’re welcoming Jarrod Dicker, a partner at TCG who helps drive their investments in blockchain, cryptocurrency, and technology that connects creators with fans. He was previously the Vice President of Commercial Technology and Development at the Washington Post and the CEO of blockchain startup Po.et. 

Jarrod has been at the forefront of creator communities and consumer crypto trends for a long time. In this conversation, we talk to him about how he’s currently thinking about investing in the consumer crypto space or what he calls ‘Web 2.5.’ 

We also discuss: 

  • His popular essay on Substack vs DAOStack
  • Whether or not media organizations should be constructed as DAOs 
  • How creators and creator platforms can be more decentralized

We hope you enjoy this conversation with Jarrod as much as we did!
