a16z Podcast: ‘The Most Boring Yet Valuable’ 20 Minutes, All about Board Minutes


“The most boring yet valuable podcast in a16z history” — he (our guest Joe Grundfest) said it, not we!

That’s because in this episode of the a16z Podcast, Stanford law professor and former SEC commissioner Grundfest — and securities litigation lawyer Nicki Locker of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati — discuss not just the importance, but the almost literary balance (“somewhere between haiku and Tolstoy”) behind doing board meeting minutes just right.

Yes, that’s right: this is a podcast all about board minutes. But it is arguably the most “valuable litigation insurance you can buy for free” … especially if you learn to create a record that can survive an attack by a conspiracy theorist.
