Introducing the All Turtles Podcast! Episode 1: The mythology of the garage

From All Turtles, a weekly podcast that examines entrepreneurship and product development through the lens of an AI startup studio. Join hosts Phil Libin, Jessica Collier, Blaise Zerega, and other members of the All Turtles team for smart insights — peppered with irreverence — about how to go from idea to pilot to product. Each week, they’ll respond to listener questions and discuss the people, ideas, and products changing the world through practical applications of AI.

Our premier episode features Phil Libin, Jessica Collier, and Blaise Zerega. Listen as they discuss the origins of the All Turtles studio and debunk one of Silicon Valley’s most iconic myths: the solo entrepreneur toiling in a garage. Along the way, they explain why founding teams should focus on building products before building companies. They tackle listener questions about blockchain, artificial intelligence, and how to bring more women and underrepresented minorities into the tech workforce. They also share their everyday encounters with AI — mundane, but practical.
