Best Tech Conversation-based Podcast

this is my favorite new tech podcast. usually not a fan of super conversational, hour long + podcasts but Laurie is a genius. She picks great topics but isn’t afraid to ask guests what everyone actually wants to know and goes pretty deep into sub-topics that I think can apply to all aspects of life and attract listeners that aren’t even super techy. Love the real life implications incorporated into the conversations and think this podcast is important for any/everyone to listen to.
Lookin forward to more quality content 💖
