  • G R on January 20, 2022

    Within 90 seconds I understand Shift4 ( never heard of them before ) But I have researched Palantir for over a year and I still don't have a clue what they do.

  • Daniel Bennett on January 20, 2022

    I am so impressed with him. So straight forward and calm as a CEO and a person. Bought 10 leaps.

  • Dave Graham on January 20, 2022

    Great interview.

  • Pen Shon on January 20, 2022

    Why such boring cliché questions??? How you inspire your kids?? I sow him rolling his eyes.
    You had chance to ask about space , avionics, spacex, and instead you ask how credit card payment process are used in restaurants

  • drew4021 on January 20, 2022

    Thank you for another awesome interview Dave. Not to sound too cynical but I knew all along there was something more in this for Jared and his company He now gets an amazing hookup with Spacex and Elon as an added bonus.

  • DauerBass on January 20, 2022

    Love yours guests lately, Dave! Always up for a great surprise

  • Alexander Roberts on January 20, 2022

    Shift4 payments or FOUR I’m pretty sure.

  • Steven Li on Investing on January 20, 2022

    Great interview! your interviews with other people are the best

  • Elon Musketeer on January 20, 2022

    Drop-out or not it has no bearing on you becoming a billionaire, especially 2-3 decades ago.
    Just like having a PhD has no bearing on you becoming a billionaire.

  • kenypowa on January 20, 2022

    I was in the KSC watching the Inspiration 4 launch. It was an incredible sight. I encourage everyone to watch at least one launch in person. It's the most incredible thing I've experienced.

  • Rowland on January 20, 2022

    I like Jared clean hearted guy!!!!!hopefully we will see him on the moon one day.

  • Brian Marks on January 20, 2022

    Oh yeah, he's totally ramping up to put money on a Starship flight. What fundraising ability that would have! Will he be the second human rated flight purchaser?

  • k k on January 20, 2022

    One step closer to Elon 😉

  • xerophinity on January 20, 2022

    Wow. Dave has been on fire with his guests as of late!

  • Bill B on January 20, 2022

    Always amazing interviews, and so much thanks to Jarrod for giving us some of his valuable time. KUDOS!

  • Bradly S on January 20, 2022

    His initial co UBC was simply a reseller of payment processing services just like everyone else in the time frame of 1.0, where he used Paymentech as their actual settlement payment network. They sold inflated merchant contracts to small businesses and built a bloated portfolio of clients that paid them significant monthly residual revenue.

  • Edward Tse on January 20, 2022

    Another proof that Musk absolutely rewards people who he appreciates. It hit me when Jared said "We did not deserve the Starlink contract".
