Indeed the Best Magazine

The best magazine in print today. Those properties don’t always travel as well in the podcast format. The guests/topics are often interesting, sometimes compelling. David Remnick is mult-italented: nearly as keen a podcast host as he is an editor. There is value in brevity however, some topics require the long form.

Idk why!

Like ever since I heard driver’s license I was inspired!… I’ve always loved singing, songwriting, and anything between! Olivia Rodrigo is who inspired me most… thats why I love this podcast!!

Katie Drummond is delusional

She compared TikTok to American social media companies without mentioning the trust difference. We should not trust the Chinese Communist Party. They have proven they will lie, cheap, copy and steal, The CCP has an executive in every big Chinese enterprise and that person is more powerful than the CEO.

The Chinese are excellent at the long game. They may not be stealing data from Tik Tok now, but they will in the future.

Katie, don’t you think it’s odd that TikTok is not available in China? Neither is Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, The Economist, The New York Times, and most other western media. You called Biden hypocritical for this decision but you give the Chinese a pass?

We are crazy to allow TikTok, as it may well be the instrument of our demise.
