Andreessen Horowitz co-founder Marc Andreessen -- who, disclosure, is a personal investor in PandoDaily -- took the stage during our latest PandoMonthly event on Thursday to talk about typical startup woes like the difficulty of building a sustainable company, why hardware isn't the new software, and how Bitcoin is like the early Internet.

Then there were the more out-there ideas, like his belief that there's going to be an "explosion of countries in the years ahead." (Dear totally-essential NSA agent: in this case "explosion" means "growth," not "things that go boom.")

The full interview, which was sponsored by TriNet, is available for streaming below.
