Going All-In
The four besties (Chamath Palihapitiya, Jason Calacanis, David Sacks & David Friedberg) describe themselves as industry veterans and degenerate gamblers in their All-In Podcast description. It is perhaps the style of conversation and the range of topics covering all things economic, tech, political, social & poker that has propelled their podcast to the top of charts on iTunes and Spotify.

We discovered and started listening around October last year, and since then, we have become fans of the podcast! Every time a new episode drops, it’s a cause for 🥳
The idea for All-In Stats was born out of a simple observation - “Chamath’s excellent monologues seemed to dominate the conversation. But is there a way to answer this question? It would be fun to explore this and possible learn something in the process.
Fortunately for us, AI-based transcription services have come a long way these days, and all public cloud providers provide a way to convert speech to text. We used one such service to create a transcription of all the episodes and then generate the stats. Here’s an example of the stat we found:
Chamath currently leads the Besties with the total airtime of 11.2 hours (as of Episode 28). Jason is next with more than a full episode less of airtime.
Who are Kay and Keerat?
We’re a team of two brothers who love technology, and All-In Stats represents a way to put those skills to use on a fun 🙂 weekend-ish project. Professionally, Kay is a Product Manager, and Keerat is a developer, so this product’s responsibilities align naturally. 🎉
What can you look forward to?
We’re going to be tracking stats such as:
  1. Total airtime per speaker over all episodes
  2. Total number of monologues over all episodes
  3. Longest monologue
  4. Total airtime per speaker per episode
