Antonio Garcia-Martinez' "Chaos Monkeys" (Harper) was an instant New York Times bestseller. Andrew Ross Sorkin in the New York Times said "Incisive -- the most fun business book I've read this year. Clearly there will be people who hate this book -- which is probably one of the things that make it such a great read".

In this episode, Antonio covers a range of Silicon Valley topics - including some heroics from Y-combinator's Sam Altman. Sam has since been in the news for supporting Donald Trump supporter and Silicon Valley investor Peter Thiel.


In the Something Ventured podcast, Silicon Valley insider Kent Lindstrom explores the reality behind the Silicon Valley headlines as he sits down with the people who are shaping the way we view the word online...and beyond.
