Thoughtful, insightful and engaging, must-listen content

James and Ben have a dynamic that is captivating, generating thoughtful discussion on nuanced issues with an accessible and humorous touch. Highly recommend for anyone interested in the state of technology, media and society today and historically. Stratechery in a conversation. Superfan!

Not good

Rambling, incoherent thoughts, if you like that sort of thing.

Cancel

Has anyone noticed that James moans while Ben talks?

I’m canceling this podcast. Total rubbish.
