Andrew Mason, the founder and former CEO of Groupon, talks with Recode’s Kara
Swisher and The Verge’s Casey Newton about his latest startup, Descript. The
company bills itself as a “word processor for audio,” making podcasts and
other spoken word recordings easy to edit for non-technical content creators.
Mason also talks about the “surreal” rise and fall of his career at Groupon,
why he regrets publicly announcing that he was fired as CEO and why he once
brought a horse to Groupon’s office as a gift for Michael Bloomberg.
