    Facebook’s “cultural crisis,” Mark Cuban on the NBA’s rebound, and Kara gets replaced by AI

    Kara and Scott chat about the delay of the tech antitrust hearing, the "unprecedented culture crisis" at Facebook, and the think-tank financed by Big Tech that is schmoozing foreign regulators.

Also: What should Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg have behind them when they testify, what should we take away from AOC's battle with Ted Yoho, and can an AI algorithm write better than Kara Swisher?
