Here at PandoDaily, we've written a lot about the Series A Crunch and what it means for investors and entrepreneurs. That includes warningssurvivor's tipscase studies and even an outright denial. But according to the data (and Twitter), the phenomenon is real  and something all startups should keep in mind, whether they're gearing up for a seed round or hoping for that crucial round of Series A funding.

Because our coverage is a lot to take in at once, PandoDaily and the Explainer Music team have created a musical primer explaining what the Series A Crunch is and how it came about. That way, you'll have the context and background you need to dive into our continued coverage of the crunch. Also we just couldn't resist writing a blues song about the Series A Crunch. Enjoy!
