The best

Honestly, this is one of the best shows I’ve ever listened to. I usually listen to it on WFMU and am blown away by the raw reality, truth and overall informative nature of this podcast. Mark is a phenomenal host and interviewer and you can tell he is extremely intelligent in the best way possible. Two Thumbs up!!!

Mark has always been at the forefront of critical thinking about humans and tech culture. He's worth listening to - and fun to boot!
