Kim and Spencer discuss the concept of retirement, with reference to thoughts from the founder of AngelList, Naval Ravikant. Ravikant's advice for retirement includes saving money, lowering your spending rate, and doing what you love so that retirement becomes unnecessary.  The hosts emphasize the benefit of virtual jobs, saying that they are perfect for older people who wish to keep working and earning, while staying active and engaged. They add that this kind of work can help offset inflation and contribute to a fulfilled life.
