+Jason Calacanis The $10 per month on Spotify has to be split to pay the other artists on Spotify. Currently Spotify pays about 0.5 cents per 30sec+ play. This is an unsustainable rate for Howard.

Howard Stern’s show doesn't have a lot of replay value and the demographics are older. Spotify's audience is significantly younger than SiriusXM.

SiriusXM has more paid subscribers, significantly higher rates per subscriber, and less artists to payout.

I KNEW I recognized him from somewhere, just watched him on CNBC discussing Uber! I like how they invite other CEOs to discuss tech news.

Story
Tagline
Founder of Inside.com, Host of This Week In Startups & Angel Investor in 70 startups (including Uber!)
Introduction
I'm a kid from Brooklyn who was born at the right time and whose parents did the right thing and bought him a PCjr (a computer) with a Ventel 300 Baud Modem (how we used to get online in the 80s). 

After 25 years starting and investing in companies I've learned a couple of things, most importantly that you miss 100% of shots you don't take. 

So, I take a lot shots, miss most and people remember the four I drained. If you've got a killer idea that you've built a prototype of send it to me and if it's executed at a high-level I'll probably send you back a half dozen questions. From there, who knows, maybe you'll let me invest in your company and we'll change the world together! Or fail spectacularly and try again! 

it's all good....
