Spencer Rascoff started Hotwire and Zillow and eventually turned them into $750 million and $30 billion companies respectively. He joins James to talk about the history of those two companies, relocating to LA, and what makes a good founder. They wrap the show with a very digestible explanation of SPACs (Special Purpose Acquisition Companies) and how Spencer handles his love/hate relationship with social media.
