a16z Podcast: When Banking Works Like My Smartphone

    There are fewer and fewer parts of our lives that don’t feel like an extension of our smartphones. Any song you might want to hear. Any place you might want to go. And a ride to get there. All served up simply, quickly, at the right price, and with an experience that is actually enjoyable.
