What the Trump vs TikTok discussion ignores - ByteDance is an AI company, not a social media company. Is Facebook responsible for conspiracy theories? History says no.

Timreddlyon ,

The main podcast I listen to

Twit is really informative and entertaining. Leo is great. Sometimes they go off on un-tech-related tangents that can take too-long to return. But I recommend it anyway :)

Andybchvh ,

Love Leo !!! And his great guests !

Always been a fan of Leo since his days at
Techtv , a pleasure to listen to !

just a lustener 2 2 ,

Balance

Please give Lisa Schnmeisen her own show so she doesn’t dominate this one with her comments, her need to speak over others, her need to be heard, giggles, self important mmhms, interruptions, expressing her opinion more than anyone else , rtc to be heard. You d give 5stars if it wasn’t for her,

I hadn’t listened to TWIT for a long time because the previous host spoke over his guests and episode after episode seemed to focus on phones. Was pleasantly surprised when I listened today, new host,much better show., until one of the guests dominated seemingly as she is apparently more knowledgeable that anyone else.

Regards, Sophie

PS Thabks for TWIL, Denise and constellation so smart and interesting.
