Mr. Pell has turned his addiction for getting the scoop into a vast and loyal following of A-list media heads. He calls NextDraft his “modern-day column,” and the infectious, one-man curation engine is hard to delete (although he believes his friends do it often).

In addition to being a successful venture capitalist, Dave carves out time to do a weekly podcast with veteran journalist Phil Bronstein called What Hurts, a unique blend of “fascinating news and personal angst.”

In this file Dave Pell and I discuss:

  • The Downside of Technology
  • How to Turn an Addiction to News into an Audience
  • Video Game Music as a Productivity Hack
  • Why You Should Always Delete Your First Paragraph
  • The Real Difference Between Writing and Podcasting
  • How Tony Soprano Raised Dave Pell’s Stock
