The Creator Economy Podcast


Episode 3: Josh Constine to the metaverse and beyond

Season 1, Ep. 3

From TechCrunch Editor-At-Large to Head of Content at VC Fund SignalFire, Josh is a creator economy virtuoso. Check out what he had to say about the almighty metaverse and why shrinking your audience might be the way forward.

When Josh was studying at Stanford, he became keenly interested in technology’s influence on human interaction. How do privacy controls affect children? What’s a meme’s lifecycle? He ended up taking that intrigue and designing his own Master’s degree: Cybersociology.

Out of school, Josh began writing for Inside Facebook, a blog where he published over 2,000 articles about the social platform. After a $14 million acquisition, Josh took his knack for journalism to TechCrunch, where he would become Editor-At-Large for 8.5 years. He was literally the most cited tech journalist in the world. But after reporting on tech for years, he’s fresh in the business of shaping it. Josh is currently Head of Content for VC firm SignalFire, which invests in early-stage tech startups.
