I sat down with my cofounder, Michael Seibel, to talk about how we turned our live reality show into the global platform that eventually became Twitch. Michael was previously the CEO of Y Combinator, the seed stage fund known as the first investor in Stripe, Dropbox, Instacart, Coinbase, Reddit, and thousands of other startups.

Michael is one of my closest friends and an amazing mentor. In this episode we talk about his education at Yale, founding together, mentoring the Airbnb founders early on, how to get funded by Y Combinator, and so much more.
