Scott Galloway is My Joe Rogan

I came to Pivot after Cara kept popping up on Pod Save America. I’d never heard of Scott before. However, I’m now a total fanboy and convert and now reading all “The Dawgs” books. Can’t wait for Cara’s. I’m in the UK and a total technology and politics junkie. These guys hit all the spots. Their math is definitely mathing!

Chagrined independent ,

Baratunde for the win.

As much as I enjoy Scot and hope he continues with the podcast, if he choses a different direction can I advocate for Baratunde Thurston as his replacement. What a gent, funny, self deprecating, incisive and passionate. Could listen to him & Kara (when she lets him get a word in) all day long.

Crypto Ads? What happened

Great podcast, it’s the #1 I listen to bi-weekly usually. But more recently (last 6 months) it’s just become more performant I’ve and virtue signalling, this would still earn 5* though, as it’s great overall content and guests. Usually the Ads are the best too, but these crypto ads Scott is now endorsing (I assume not by choice) go against the shows narrative and I think are kind of scammy. The kind of low quality ad content that’s even banned on most social media. Poor form Vox, all your other advertisers are great, why do you need to take spam advertisers blows my mind!
