    Lurking (a conversation with Joanne McNeil)

    Just before the Coronavirus upended our lives I recorded a conversation with writer Joanne Mcneil about her new book Lurking, a book about the internet. Its actually one of my now favorite books ever written about the internet. I had the show all ready to go for the week of March 15th and then… well everything changed, even our dependence on the internet. Joanne Mcneil’s book feels even more relevant now. Get Lurking here from Bookshop.

Someone who does not take himself too seriously

And has a lot of fun

Crazy good

This show is crazy in an amazing way. There is such little content being put out that is interesting, engaging, and that forces you to think differently about current events that this is a breath of fresh air.
Keep it up, dude!

Very creative content, takes a hard turn to the left

Quite different from the “usual” podcasts. Benjamin Walker has an amazingly creative mind. I don’t think every show works, at least not for me. Unfortunately, not crazy with the more and more extreme direction of the podcast.
