This is episode #2 of our new show, 16 Minutes, where we quickly cover recent headlines of the week, the a16z way — why they’re in the news; why they matter from our vantage point in tech — and share our experts’ views on these trends as well.

This week we cover, with the following a16z experts:

  • mobile malware and a recent report of a new kind in the wild and security in a post-perimeter world — with a16z general partner Martin Casado.
  • drug pricing given recent proposals on the table, sharing a lay of the land for why drug pricing is so damn hard, what is a medicine, and where tech comes in — with a16z bio general partner Jorge Conde and market dev partner Jay Rughani.
