What Culture desperately needs right now

Kara Swisher and her team are doing brilliant work to produce this podcast - informational dialogues focused on truth, relevance and integrity. Can’t recommend highly enough

Unbelievably Irritating

Impossible to listen to these two CONSTANTLY trying to be funny, constant awful jokes and so many factual inaccuracies for two “tech journalists”

Kara is great.

Kara is a skilled interviewer and asks the tough questions. She isn’t about being ‘nice’ with her guests, it’s all about getting the answers. Great for listeners who want to understand the story.
