Always making me think

Thanks for changing up my list of product podcasts with something that makes me stop and think harder about what I build and its consequences. A great listen every time.

Stick to your mission please

In general, I enjoy this podcast. Fake is knowledgeable and a good host. They choose interesting topics and get good guests to interview. Some good questions are raised, which are the first steps toward understanding and discussion.

However, let me tell you what should NOT exist- a 5 min episode advertising a new podcast on transcendental meditation, in a feed for this podcast on ethics and technology. Were you compensated financially for selling out your listeners? Meditation is fine if it works for you, but if I am interested in it, I will search for and subscribe to it. Seriously considering unsubscribing now. Bad form, guys!
