    Land of the Giants – “Facebook Gets a Face Lift”

    Land of the Giants – “Facebook Gets a Face Lift”

    We are sharing the first episode of Land of the Giants: The Facebook/ Meta Disruption. Long before Mark Zuckerberg renamed Facebook Meta and made an unprecedented pivot into the metaverse, he invented a feature that turned Facebook into a social network behemoth. The News Feed, which put your friends’ status updates onto your homepage, changed how we interact online. It was a strong statement of Zuckerberg’s values: that connecting and sharing at scale would be de-facto good for the world. It was also his first public controversy. Follow Land of the Giants to get new episodes every Wednesday.

    Can we stay cool without heating up the planet?

    Can we stay cool without heating up the planet?

    How do we stay cool on a warming planet? Air conditioning is one way, but depending on what kind of AC unit you have, it could be actually polluting the air and making the problem worse. Umair Irfan, climate reporter at Vox, has been looking into this (extremely frustrating) air conditioning paradox.

The reason why I started listening to podcast

Amazingly insightful, interesting perspective. I truly hope that this podcast will receive the resources that it would need to continue to produce the stellar content.

A little sad that there is only one (rather than three) update one week.

120 seconds of content??! Ariel WRU! Save this podcast!

Since turning daily and getting rid of Ariel, the episodes have varied in content, the subject matter remains in the same realm as before so it is still interesting, at least to me. But each day per week seems to be clearly just a 30 minute podcast they could do once a week but instead they’ve turned this into an advert trap, where the amount of time you spend listening to adverts is the same as the actual produced content!! What the heck!! Today’s podcast (Feb 18th 2021), was 4 minutes, half of it was adverts??!

Got to say we miss Ariel and the work she’d put into each podcast, from a totally detached POV, sitting here in Wales, U.K., it looks like Vox shoved Ariel out of the way with her bi-weekly podcast (that actually counted as a podcast! You can’t have a 1:1 ad:content model for a podcast, Quibi with adverts for the ears?? How well did Quibi go guys at Vox??), and replaced her with a male presenter (no offence Teddy, not your fault!), then reduced the show to what might be the most watered down, ad-wise, podcast that i’ve ever spent time listening to, and that’s a lot of podcasts over the past decade!

I say bring back Ariel Duheimross (no doubt misspelt, sorry!), remove the number of episodes a week back to one or two and you’ll have a podcast that deserves to carry the name... Hey Vox... Surely the numbers of listeners hasn’t been boosted and the ads are so frequent and content lacking, no one is going to be listening to them soon! Ariel was your presenter for this show, why change her?

Great Podcast

I love this podcast so much, you share a lot of really interesting information and I really enjoy listening, but recently you’ve been playing other Vox podcasts instead of your own episodes. But I already listen to those podcasts, so I get the same episode twice which clutters up my feed, and I don’t get a new original Reset episode, which is a shame. I’m all for promoting other Vox podcasts (they’re all great after all) but I wish you’d just promote them in advert breaks and not play full episodes. Just my two cents, and I really do love the podcast otherwise!
