#32 Earning Your Stripes with Patrick Collison. On this episode of the Knowledge Project Podcast, I chat with Patrick Collison, co-founder and CEO of the leading online payment processing company, Stripe. If you’ve purchased anything online recently, there’s a good chance that Stripe facilitated the transaction. What is now an organization with over a thousand employees and handling tens of billions of dollars of online purchases every year, began as a small side experiment while Patrick and his brother John were going to college. During our conversation, Patrick shares the details of their unlikely journey and some of the hard-earned wisdom he picked up along the way. I hope you have something handy to write with because the nuggets per minute in this episode are off the charts. Patrick was so open and generous with his responses that I’m really excited for you to hear what he has to say. Here are just a few of the things we cover: The biggest (and most valuable) mistakes Patrick made in the early days of Stripe and how they helped him get better The characteristics that Patrick looks for in a new hire to fit and contribute to the Stripe company culture What compelled he and his brother to move forward with the early concept of Stripe, even though on paper it was doomed to fail from the start The gaps Patrick saw in the market that dozens of other processing companies were missing — and how he capitalized on them The lessons Patrick learned from scaling Stripe from two employees (he and his brother) to nearly 1,000 today How he evaluates the upsides and potential dangers of speculative positions within the company How his Irish upbringing influenced his ability to argue and disagree without taking offense (and how we can all be a little more “Irish”) The power of finding the right peer group in your social and professional circles and how impactful and influential it can be in determining where you end up. The 4 ways Patrick has modified his decision making process over the last 5 years and how it’s helped him develop as a person and as a business leader (this part alone is worth the listen) Patrick’s unique approach to books and how he chooses what he’s going to spend his time reading ...life in Silicon Valley, Baumol’s cost disease, and so, so much more. Patrick truly is one of the most warm, humble and down to earth people I’ve had the pleasure to speak with and I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation together. I hope you will too! *** For comprehensive show notes on this episode, including a full edited transcript, go to https://www.fs.blog/podcast/ My free weekly Brain Food digest helps you upgrade your thinking.

Airbnb's Brian Chesky in Handcrafted. If you want your company to truly scale, you first have to do things that don't scale. Handcraft the core experience. Get your hands dirty. Serve your customers one-by-one. And don't stop until you know exactly what they want. That's what Brian Chesky did. As CEO of Airbnb, Brian’s early work was more akin to a traveling salesman. He takes us back to his lean years – when he went door-to-door, meeting Airbnb hosts in person – and shares the imaginative route to crafting what he calls an "11-star experience.”
Turning Kids Into Grown-Ups. Parenting is fraught with uncertainty, changing with each generation. This hour, TED speakers share ideas about raising kids and how — despite our best efforts — we're probably still doing it wrong. Guests include former Stanford dean Julie Lythcott-Haims, former firefighter Caroline Paul, author Peggy Orenstein, psychologist Dr. Aala El-Khani, and poet Sarah Kay.
Parenting Doesn't Matter (Or Not As Much As You Think). The multibillion-pound parenting industry tells us we can all shape our children to be joyful, resilient and successful. But what if it’s all bunk? Intelligence Squared are bringing together a panel of top geneticists and parenting experts to explore just how important parenting is.Arguing in favour of the motion are Robert Plomin, Psychologist and Professor of Behavioural Genetics at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London; and Stuart Ritchie, Lecturer in the Social Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre at King’s College London.Arguing against the motion were Susan Pawlby, a developmental Clinical Psychologist with over 30 years of experience working with mothers and babies both in clinical and research contexts; and Ann Pleshette Murphy, a therapist, parenting counsellor and advocate for young children and their families.The debate was chaired by Xand van Tulleken, a medical doctor and broadcaster who has presented numerous shows for the BBC and Channel 4, often alongside his identical twin brother Chris.

Rank #1: Mark Levin Audio Rewind - 7/30/19. On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show, Rep. John Ratcliffe was great in Congress and in the DOJ and is a great pick for director of national intelligence. But Democrats, RINO's and the media are out to destroy him because he defends President Trump. This smear campaign must be stopped. Also, the truth is that the racist narrative against Trump is to slow down the gains he has made with African Americans. The truth is that the Democrats cannot win if they don't monopolize votes from African American voters. But, now all bets are off and Chairman Elijah Cummings has now subpoenaed Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump for their financial records during their time on staff at the White House. This charade is not for the sake of governing but for the sake of getting soundbites while they try to destroy Trump's presidency. Then, the Media Research Center reports that executives from NBC News' parent company (Comcast) donated to Kamala Harris' campaign prior to the last debate which was hosted by none other than NBC News. The media is pushing the agenda, public opinion, and these polls. We are no longer dealing with fact-based news or straight reporting, that has been replaced by social activism "journalism." This same media knows very well that Trump attacked one white man after another in his own debates while running for president. Trump, however, pushes back, he's not a country club Republican, he owns the country club. Yet, the left has devoured, our schools, Hollywood, and the press as well and Trump is their main obstacle stopping them from radically changing our Constitutional system. They will do anything to define who he is in the media, putting words in his mouth to either impeach or indict this President.
Rank #2: Mark Levin Audio Rewind - 7/29/19. On Monday's Mark Levin Show, President Trump is taking heat for pushing back on Rep. Elijah Cummings' treatment of Homeland Security officials testifying before Cummings who chairs the House Oversight committee. The Democrats, and by extension the media, are piling on to allege that Trump is racist for, accurately, saying that Baltimore is rat-infested and poorly run. Then, the media called Trump a racist after Hurricane Maria for his past comments on Puerto Rico, now we see that his comments about corruption were correct. Later, Al Sharpton has gone to Baltimore to stoke the flames of demagoguery in the hopes he will poison the well and deter from Trump's recent gains among African American voters due to Trump's record of success with the economy, specifically the president's policies which have led to more Black-Americans having more jobs and earning more money. Later, a re-cap of the commentary and analysis from two former Attorney's General, Ed Meese and Michael Mukasey, discussing impeachment and the Democrats' attempted subversion of Trump's 2016 campaign. Finally, Rep. Rashida Tlaib is not getting the credit she deserves for being an anti-Semite. She is now saying that Israel exists to the detriment of Palestinians.
