Tech, politics and culture are the subjects of Bradley Tusk's free-wheeling, twice-weekly podcast. He brings you inside the room where entrepreneurs, investors, policy makers, strategists and journalists reveal what's really on their minds.
The Real Thiel
For a guy who distrusts the media, Peter Thiel has an incredible knack for making his voice heard. How does he do it? Bradley talks to Max Chafkin, author of 'The Contrarian', the excellent new biography of Silicon Valley's most enigmatic figure.
Dr. Zoom is In
The pandemic made digital healthcare a necessity, but are those changes here to stay? Quinn Shean, who specializes in digital health for Tusk, assesses the future of the industry and the regulatory hurdles that remain.
Why Not a New City?
How would we live if we could start from scratch? Bradley talks to Dryden Brown, the co-founder and CEO of Praxis, about how they plan to build the city of the future.
The Transformational Stuff
Lisa Quigley, a former Hill staffer and advocate for poverty programs, joins Bradley to discuss the Biden administration's $3.5 trillion spending package — which pieces of it represent major structural change and which throw money at business as usual. Plus, the latest on Apple, why there could be an exodus from Austin and tips on how to do a million things at once.
California on Trial
What do Elizabeth Holmes and Gavin Newsom have in common? They both live in California and they're both in trouble, though to be fair, Holmes is the only one facing 20 years in prison. Bradley addresses the great dramas of the Golden State, plus an analysis of the new abortion ban in Texas.
'Digitize the Dollar Immediately'
What will it take for Wall Street and Washington to get smart about crypto and the future of currency? Bradley sits down with crypto guru Anthony Pompliano to talk about why "a native currency of the Internet" is so frightening to legacy players — and so unstoppable. "I wouldn't want to be the person who's short the industry," says Pomp, "whether I'm covering it or investing in it or just from an intellectual curiosity level."
Surprised you didn’t bring up Dan doctoroff’s recent NYT article about repurposing outdoor dining. Would love to hear Bradley and Hugo’s thoughts on that in a coming episode.
