The intersection of politics, technology and regulatory issues has never been as energized as it is now. Every other week, Bradley Tusk talks with the most influential investors, policy makers and entrepreneurs about the latest trends in the venture space, tech world and political arena.
Rooting for Darth Vader
When it comes to sports, do fans have to check their morals at the door? Bradley is joined by Joe Posnanski, Senior Writer at The Athletic and author of the awesome Baseball 100, to discuss Steve Cohen's acquisition of the Mets, the cloudy future of America's pastime, and the eternal debate of Willie Mays v. Mickey Mantle.
The Robot Takeover
Are machines going to steal jobs from humans — or lead to the invention of new jobs we never imagined? Bradley gets answers from Brady Watkins, head of Softbank Robotics.
How Different Will Life Be Under Biden?
Not as much as you think, says economist Tyler Cowen. The co-proprietor of the influential Marginal Revolution blog tells Bradley that “the hands of the United States are tied in some critical ways ... People think we’re going to live under the reign of science now? Good luck with that one.”
Trump Removal Machine
Don't worry, there will be no coup. But Trump is not done trolling the world. Bradley, Hugo, and Maura discuss Schumer's potential fall from grace, AOC's flaming of the "sitting duck" Democrats, the opportunities for tech under Biden and whether Maggie Haberman will ever get a vacation.
Big Tech's #mefirst Problem
The geniuses of Silicon Valley can't easily get away with being total jerks anymore, but there's still a long way to go. Bradley talks to Maelle Gavet, tech executive, entrepreneur, former COO of Compass, and author of Trampled By Unicorns, Big Tech's Empathy Problem and How to Fix It. "We're victims of these companies," says Maelle, "but we're also perpetrators."
