This week, the “Masters in Business” podcast features angel investor Howard Lindzon. He runs the venture fund Social Leverage and is the co-founder of Stocktwits.

Lindzon discusses the differences between public and private investing, how he got lucky with his first angel investment, and why making mistakes is one of the best ways to learn what not to do (such as passing on investing in Twitter when it had a $20 million valuation).

You can hear the interview on Bloomberg Radio, download the podcast here or on Apple iTunes. All of our prior podcasts are available on iTunes. Next week, I interview Dan Alpert of Westwood Capital.
